Tuition Grant

The Ministry of Education, Singapore (MOE) provides tuition grant (TG) which covers a substantial portion of the full tuition fees to eligible students.

Students who receive the tuition grant are required to pay only the subsidized tuition fee.

Who is Eligible?

Full-time undergraduate students who gain admission to NTU on a subsidised fee basi​s are eligible for Tuition Grant and GST subsidy from MOE up to the normal duration taken to complete a degree programme. This is usually three or four years, depending on the programme.

For students who transfer or are re-admitted within NTU or across local universities, they will be eligible for Tuition Grant up to the normal programme duration less the number of semesters of Tuition Grant received for the previous programme(s).

For example, if a student had spent 2 semesters in a local university, and transfers to NTU to pursue a 4-year (i.e. 8-semester) undergraduate programme, the student will be eligible for the MOE Tuition Grant for only 6 (i.e. 8 minus 2) semesters at NTU.
