Question

To ask the Minister for Education (a) whether the Ministry's Tuition Fee Loan (TFL) scheme can be extended to Approved Educational Institutions (AEIs) covered under the CPF Education Loan Scheme but not currently under the TFL scheme; and (b) if not, why.

Response

1. All Approved Education Institutions under the CPF Education Loan Scheme are covered by MOE's Tuition Fee Loan Scheme, with the exception of our publicly-funded arts institutions, the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) and LASALLE College of the Arts.

2. MOE has been considering the extension of the Tuition Fee Loan Scheme to the two arts institutions. In the meantime, Singaporean students from these institutions who need financial assistance can continue to access government bursaries as well as financial aid offered by these institutions.
