Question

To ask the Minister for Education whether the Ministry will consider providing interest-free financial support to Singaporeans pursuing degrees at the PSB Academy.

Response

1. Private Education Institutions (PEIs), including PSB Academy, are not part of the public education system and hence generally do not receive government funding.

2. We have likewise not extended government-funded loans to PEI students. They may apply for financial assistance offered by PEIs, or tap on education loans offered by commercial banks, to finance their studies.
