Nus Part Time Phd Fees

Last Updated on July 29, 2023

Fees for Graduate Programmes

The University’s fees are reviewed and adjusted periodically to reflect the approximate cost of providing education to students. Unlike undergraduate education, most graduate programmes are designed to be largely self-funding, with little or no subsidy from the Government of Singapore.

Tuition Fees

  1. Government-subsidised graduate programmesThe annual tuition fees for different categories of government-subsidised graduate programmes are set out here. The substantial tuition subsidy from the Government of Singapore is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and is offered to all eligible students. Students need not apply for the MOE Subsidy if they are eligible.The fees for the Academic Year will be made available every March or April of the year. For example, fees for AY2019/2020 will be published in March/April 2019.
    • Service Obligation (SO) Scheme and Graduate Assistantship Programme (GAP)International Students reading a government-subsidised programme can apply for the SO Scheme to pay reduced tuition fees. With effect from AY2017/2018, International Students who are on MOE-funded scholarships that come with Graduate Assistantship Programme (GAP) requirements [e.g. NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences & Engineering Scholarship (NGSS), President’s Graduate Fellowship (PGF), NUS Research Scholarship (RS), Tuition Fee Allowance (TFA) and Singapore International Graduate Award (SINGA)] are not eligible to sign for the SO Scheme.
    • Tuition Fee beyond Normal and Maximum Candidature PeriodWith effect from of AY2019/2020, students admitted into a government-subsidised graduate coursework degree programme and who take longer than the normal candidature period to complete their degree requirements will have to pay full unsubsidized fees, during the extended semesters.Students who are admitted prior to AY2019/2020, will continue to pay subsidised fees until their maximum candidature period. Those who take longer than the maximum candidature period are required to pay full unsubsidised fees, during their extended semesters.The list of government-subsidised graduate coursework programmes and its corresponding normal and maximum candidature period can be found here.For more information, please refer to FAQ.
  2. Self-funded graduate coursework programmesTuition fees for self-funded graduate coursework programmes can be found at the respective programme websites. The list of self-funded graduate coursework programmes is set out here.
