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.

How to Apply?

Singapore Citizens
Singaporean students do not need to submit an application for MOE Tuition Grant and will automatically receive a Tuition Grant, if they have not already availed the maximum Tuition Grant in another bachelor degree or higher degree in a local university. They are required to fill in a Tuition Grant Declaration Form after they have accepted their admission programme offer and obtained their matriculation number.

Permanent Residents and international students
SPR and International students who are interested in obtaining the MOE Tuition Grant to subsidise their tuition fees are required to indicate that they are opting for TG in their online admission application form.
If they are offered a Tuition Grant together with their university place, they will need to indicate their decision if they are accepting the offer with or without Tuition Grant. For those who have accepted the admission offer with Tuition Grant, they will need to register for a Tuition Grant after they have obtained their matriculation number.
