AY2021 Tuition Fees for Temasek Polytechnic

1. There will be no change to the annual tuition fees for Singapore Citizen (SC) and Singapore Permanent Resident (PR) students admitted in AY2021 to full-time diploma courses, which remains at $2,900 and $6,000 respectively. Annual fees for International Students (IS) admitted in AY2021 to full-time diploma courses will be increased by $200, to $11,000. The tuition fees for the AY2021 cohort can be found in Table 1 below. 

Course Nationality  Tuition Fees*
New Students (AY2021 Intake)
SC $2,900
PR $6,000
IS $11,000


* SC and PR fees are before GST. The Government continues to absorb the GST chargeable on tuition fees payable by SC and PR students. Fees for IS are inclusive of GST.

2. The polytechnic will continue to adopt a cohort-based fee structure for the full-time diploma courses, which means that a student’s fees will remain unchanged for the duration of their course. Existing students will therefore pay the tuition fees that they have paid in AY2020 for the remaining duration of their course.

3. Tuition fees are reviewed annually and adjusted where necessary to defray the cost of education and enable the polytechnic to continue to invest in capability-building initiatives to deliver high-quality education.  

4. The Government continues to heavily subsidise the cost of a polytechnic education for Singaporeans. Additional financial support is also available to SC students from low to middle-income families through various financial assistance schemes, so that no student will be denied the opportunity of a polytechnic education because of financial difficulties. For more information on the financial assistance schemes available, you can refer to the Financial Assistance Schemes page.
