*Tuition Fee for AY2016/2017 will only be released by May 2016.



All subsidised fee amounts quoted above are exclusive of prevailing Goods and Services Tax (GST). The applicable GST is subsidised by the Ministry of Education (MOE).

The tuition fees for both full-time and part-time candidates are the same. Fees are subject to change at any time. A late fee may be imposed for fees which are not fully paid by the due date indicated in the bill each semester.

Students who are full-time staff members may apply for the staff concession on the tuition fees of government subsidised graduate programmes. Information on the staff concession is available at the NUS Staff Portal.


Students who have previously enjoyed government subsidy or sponsorship by a Singapore government agency (such as scholarships offered by the Ministries, Public Service Commission and Statutory Boards) in a graduate programme will not be eligible for MOE subsidy in another graduate programme at the same or lower level. For example, students who had previously enjoyed subsidy/scholarship in a Masters programme and had attained the Masters degree will not be eligible for subsidy in another programme at Masters or lower level. In addition, if they wish to upgrade and enroll in a graduate programme that has a combination of Masters and PhD candidature, they will not be eligible to enjoy subsidy/scholarship during the Masters candidature.

Students who are not eligible for MOE subsidy are also ineligible for some scholarships. For example, the President’s Graduate Fellowship, NUS Research Scholarship and Tuition Fee Waiver, etc.

Students (all nationality) who did not complete an earlier graduate programme and are now re-admitted to another/same graduate programme within NUS or across Autonomous Universities (refers to NTU, SMU and SUTD) will be eligible for MOE subsidy only up to the maximum course duration for the new course less the number of semesters of government subsidy / scholarship received for the previous course(s).


In some programmes, the University may deem it feasible, based on industry demand, to implement a Service Obligation Scheme for international students. The determination of this feasibility is at the sole discretion of the University.

International students who sign the Service Obligation Agreement are required to work in Singapore-based companies for 3 years upon graduation. Singapore-based companies refer to local and international companies that have a base in Singapore that is registered with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) as well as companies of such local and international companies registered with ACRA that are based overseas.


Other Miscellaneous Student Fees are as follows on a semestral basis: Full-time Part-time
Student Services Fee (SSF) S$138.70 S$105.35
Health Service Fee (HSF) S$62.85 N.A.
Late Payment Charge (if applicable) S$25.00

Fees quoted are inclusive of prevailing GST.

All full-time graduate students are required to subscribe to the medical insurance scheme which covers:

  • Personal Accident Insurance Coverage
  • Hospitalisations, Surgical and Mental Health Insurance Scheme
  • Outpatient Specialist Care

Information on this scheme is available at this website.

For NUS scholars, the premium will automatically be deducted from the scholarship stipend on a semestral basis.
