Full-time Diploma

From AY2014, the Polytechnics will adopt a cohort-based fee structure, which means a student's fee will remain constant for the entire duration of the course.

From AY2016, International students will have to pay for the GST on Tuition Fee and Exam Fee.

The course fees are payable in two (2) instalments. The 1st Semester fees are payable before enrolment. The 2nd Semester fees are payable after the commencement of the second semester.

The course fees consist of Tuition Fee and Other Fees. Tuition Fee can be paid in full or partially through the application of financial schemes, such as Mendaki Tertiary Tuition Fee Subsidy, Student's PSEA funds, Student's parents' CPF accounts or DBS Tuition Fee Loan Scheme.

Note: Financial schemes, except Student's PSEA funds, are not applicable for the payment of Other Fees. Students have to pay for Other Fees using their own funds.

Tables below shows the course fees payable for a full-time diploma course.
