Tuition Fees and Grants
Our tuition fees are highly subsidised by the Singapore Government in the form of a tuition grant administered by the Ministry of Education. This makes studying at SMU affordable.
Singapore Permanent Residents and International Students paying subsidised fees must take up the tuition grant and sign a Tuition Grant Deed, which will require them to work in Singapore-registered companies for three years upon graduation from SMU. Students who are not eligible for or choose not to take the tuition grant pay the non-subsidised fees. Students paying non-subsidised fees will not be bound by the 3-year work obligation.Learn more
To assist students with their tuition fees and living expenses, we have in place a comprehensive financial aid initiative consisting of generous tuition fee loan schemes, bursaries, and a student employment scheme. These schemes are open to students who are on the Singapore Government tuition grant. Financial aid will not be available to those who are not eligible for the tuition grant or choose not to apply for it.Learn more
