Fees – Session 2011/2012

While you are pursuing your studies in NUS, you are liable to pay fees. The amount payable may depend on your nationality as well as whether you have previously enjoyed a Singapore government subsidy or sponsorship by a government agency.

In essence, students either pay fees as set out at Table 1 and 4, or Table 2 and 4 while the M.Sc.(IP Mgt) students pay fees set out at Table 3 and 4.

Category 1 – Full Tuition Fees Students who have previously enjoyed Ministry of Education (MOE)/government subsidy or sponsorship by a Singapore government agency (such as scholarships offered by the Ministries, Public Service Commission and Statutory Boards) in a graduate programme (either Masters or Ph.D degrees) will not be eligible for subsidy in another graduate programme at the same or lower level. Instead, such students will be liable to pay “Full Tuition Fees”.

For example, students who had previously enjoyed subsidy/scholarship in a Masters programme and had attained the Masters degree will not be eligible for subsidy in another programme at Masters or lower level. The Full Fees rates determined by MOE in Academic Year 2011/2012 are shown in Table 1. The Full Fees rates payable for subsequent Academic Years are subject to revision.

# For programmes that are deemed feasible (based on industry demand) to implement a service obligation, the self- financing international student may be offered the option of signing the service obligation agreement in exchange for reduced tuition fees. However, the student can only apply for service obligation with MOE on condition that they have not previously enjoyed MOE’s government subsidy in another graduate programme (see Note 4 below).

International students who have signed the Service Obligation Agreement are required to work in Singapore-based companies for 3 years upon graduation. Singapore-based companies refer to local and international companies that have a base in Singapore that is registered with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) as well as companies of such local and international companies registered with ACRA that are based overseas. For further information on service obligation, you may check from MOE’s website at https://tgonline.moe.gov.sg/tgis/normal/studentViewServiceObligationSubsidyInfo.action or send an email to gdhelp@nus.edu.sg.
