Tuition Fees (per year)-Singapore Dollars:

For reference, please refer here for the Tuition Fee amount for 2023:

For 2024, the tuition fee amount will be released around March/April 2024. 

There are two fee options (you will have to apply to NTU either on Subsidised Tuition Fees or on Non-Subsidised Tuition Fees):

The Subsidised Tuition fee (with tuition grant) is lower because the Singapore Ministry of Education provides a Tuition Grant that subsidises the fee. If you choose this option, in return, students will have to work for a Singapore-registered company for 3 years upon graduation. Students will need to find employment themselves. The University has a Career & Attachment Office (CAO) that assists and guides students with their future career from year one itself. Students opting for Subsidised Tuition Fees are eligible to apply for Scholarships or loans.

The Non-Subsidised Tuition fee (Full Fees/without tuition grant) option is bond-free but the option cannot be changed after applicant has been offered admission.
Students opting for Non-Subsidised Tuition Fee are not eligible to apply for Scholarships or loans.

Estimated Living Expenses (Monthly)-in SGD:

Accommodation (On-campus)                   S$319 - S$685*
Meals                                                              S$300 - S$400
Transport, Books & Personal Expenses    S$320- S$540
Total                                                               S$939-$1625

*The estimated cost of accommodation is based on the rate of a single room or twin-sharing room

Please do note that living costs varies from person to person, pending on his/her lifestyle here.

Scholarships & Loans:

Students who are admitted under Subsidised Tuition Fees can also apply for the Tuition Fee Loan (TFL) and the NTU Study Loan (NTUSL) to further defray their tuition fees and other expenses:

Scholarships are merit based and only the very top students among those admitted will be selected for scholarship interviews. Applicants may submit their scholarship application after they have completed their application for admission (separate application, same application period as admission application).

Details on scholarships are available at this website:

Scholarships and loans are only available to applicants who have opted for Subsidised Tuition Fees.  

Admission is by merit and very keen competition.
Admission is highly competitive, especially for International Students, due to limited places available.
Scholarships are also limited, especially for International Students.
As such, if you were to apply to NTU, we would also advise that you keep your University options open by also applying to other Universities as well.
