Financial Assistance Schemes

There are a number of financial assistance schemes at TP, and students requiring financial assistance for their education are strongly advised to take up the Tuition Fee Loan Scheme from DBS Bank which provides a loan of up to 75% of the tuition fees.

Should they require additional financial assistance, there are several bursary schemes available and they may apply for the most suitable bursary that they qualify for.

As a general rule, students may only receive one bursary for each academic year. In addition to the Tuition Fee Loan Scheme and bursaries, there are other financial assistance schemes for students.
