Eligibility Guidelines for Ministry of Education (MOE) Subsidised Fee
The substantial tuition subsidy from the Government of Singapore comes in the form of a MOE Subsidy which is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and is offered to all admitted students up to the maximum programme duration. Students need not apply for the MOE Subsidy if they are eligible.

i) Students with a Higher Degree Qualification
Students who have previously enjoyed MOE subsidy in a graduate programme will not be eligible for MOE subsidy in another graduate programme at the same or lower level. Instead, such students will be required to pay the non-subsidised fees for the graduate programme that they now wish to undertake. For example, students who had previously enjoyed MOE subsidy in a Masters programme and had attained the Masters degree will not be eligible for subsidy in another programme at Masters degree or lower level. In addition, if they wish to upgrade in another discipline area where the programme has a combination of Masters and PhD candidature, they will not be eligible to enjoy MOE subsidy during the Masters candidature.

ii) Transferred or Re-admitted Students
Students who are transferred or re-admitted within SUTD or across Autonomous Universities* will be eligible to receive MOE subsidy up to the maximum programme duration for the new programme less number of terms of MOE subsidy received for the previous programme.

* Autonomous Universities refer to Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), Singapore Management University (SMU) and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

Please note the following for tuition fee payment:

  1. Students are required to pay tuition fees for 2 terms per academic year in January and September.
  2. For Singapore Citizen students and Singapore Permanent Residents students paying subsidised fees, Goods and Services Tax (GST) on the tuition fee is subsidised by MOE. The fee amounts quoted here are exclusive of GST.
  3. GST subsidy for International Students is withdrawn from the AY2016 intakes and beyond. International students will be liable to pay GST on their tuition fees payable. The fee amounts quoted here are inclusive of GST.
  4. For students paying non-subsidised fees, GST on the tuition fees is to be borne by students.
  5. Students who have submitted their thesis are required to pay fees for the term in which they submitted their thesis, but not for any subsequent terms unless they are required to resubmit.
  6. Students are required to pay for Compulsory Miscellaneous Fees as long they remain registered students of the University regardless of point 5 above.

Compulsory Miscellaneous Fees

In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay the Compulsory Miscellaneous Fees (CMF), which are payable as long as they remain registered as students with the University. This fee is non-refundable.
