Full-time undergraduates of Polytechnics and Universities are allowed to work part-time of up to 16 hours per week during school term. However, they need to obtain permission from the Student's Liaison/Affairs Office of their respective Polytechnics and Universities. During their vacations, they are allowed to work full-time as the Ministry of Manpower has exempted them from applying for work permits.

Please note that other international students are generally not allowed to engage in any form of employment, whether paid or unpaid, or in any business, profession or occupation in Singapore during the validity of their Student's Pass, unless they have the consent in writing from the Controller of Immigration.

General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE)

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

International English Language Testing System (IELTS)

Besides English, different institutions and courses have different minimum requirements.



School or Tuition Fees may vary according to type of course and type of school (private or public). For course fees of private schools, please check directly with the institutions. MOE Tuition Grant is applicable to undergraduate students at universities and diploma students at polytechnics. The cost of University education is highly subsidized by the Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE). The high subsidy is provided in the form of a Tuition Grant (TG). The TG is the difference between the full fees (cost of training at the University) and the tuition fees payable by the student. Students who accept the TG need only pay the portion of the fees not covered by the TG. The TG is very substantial and works out to be about 65% - 80% of the full tuition fees.
