Studying at SMU is affordable, because the tuition fees are highly subsidised by the Singapore Government. This substantial subsidy comes in the form of a tuition grant administered by the Ministry of Education.
SMU adopts a fixed fee model, which guarantees that tuition fees remain unchanged throughout the normal duration of study at SMU (four years). This will give you peace of mind throughout your stay with us. However, tuition fees for every incoming freshman cohort are subject to change from year to year.

Permanent residents and foreign students who are eligible for and intend to take up the tuition grant must sign a Tuition Grant Agreement, which will require them to work in Singapore-registered companies for 3 years upon graduation from SMU. Those who are not eligible, or choose not to apply for the grant, are required to pay the non-subsidised fees. The latter will not be bound by the 3-year work obligation.
There are also tuition grant implications for applicants holding bachelor's degrees or higher qualifications and tranfers within SMU or from the other publicly-funded tertiary institutions or re-admitted undergraduate students.
