Revised School Fees for Non-Citizens in Government and Government-Aided Schools from 2018 to 2020

1. The Ministry of Education (MOE) will be revising the school fees for Singapore permanent residents (PR) and international students (IS) in Government and Government-aided schools annually from 2018 to 2020. This revision is part of MOE’s regular review of school fees. The release of the fee schedule for the next three years is to provide greater certainty on the fees for non-citizens for the next few years, and to enable parents to plan for the financing of their children’s studies in MOE schools. The revised fees will take effect from January each year.

2. For the next three years, school fees each year will increase by $25 to $60 per month for PR students, and by $25 to $150 per month for international students. Please refer to the tables below for the current and revised school fees for PR and IS for 2018 to 2020.
