Revised School Fees for Non-Citizens in Government and Government-Aided Schools for 2024 to 2026

Published Date: 18 October 2023 10:00 AM

The Ministry of Education (MOE) will be increasing school fees for Singapore permanent residents (PR) and international students (IS) in Government and Government-Aided schools over the next three years (i.e. 2024 – 2026). This is part of MOE’s regular review of school fees. The release of planned fee increases for non-citizens will enable parents to plan the financing of their children’s studies in MOE schools.

2. For the next three years, the monthly school fees will increase by $25 to $60 for PR students, and $25 to $140 for IS each year. The revised fees will take effect from January each year. Please refer to the tables below for the revised school fees for PR and IS from 2024 to 2026.
