Singapore’s school fees on the rise

The Singapore Education Ministry has issued a decision to increase school fees in Singapore, the intention of the Singapore Government is to maintain an average fee rate in the country which will mean an increase for certain locations.

The increase will be gradual until 2020, each year the increase will be between SGD $25 to SGD $60 per month for permanent resident students and between SGD $25 to SGD $150 per month for international students. Many families are now considering sending their children national schools instead of attending international schools due to the fee increase.
