The Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) will be implementing a revised fee structure for public and government schools, polytechnics and universities. Non-Singapore citizens admitted from academic year 2008 will pay higher fees.
The changes for the tertiary institutes (polytechnics and universities) are :
- Permanent Residents (PR) will pay 10% more than Singapore citizens. Currently, PRs pay the same amount as citizens.
- Foreigners will pay 50% more than Singapore citizens. Currently, foreigners pay 10% more than citizens.
As an illustration, annual tuition fees for medicine-related courses (undergraduate course unless indicated otherwise) are tabulated below:
|Nursing/ Physiotherapy (Diploma)||2,100||2,310||3,150|
The above table is based on academic year 2006's fees. Future years' tuition fees may change.
