SkillsFuture Credit

SkillsFuture Credit aims to encourage individuals to take ownership of their skills development and lifelong learning. Starting January 2016, all Singapore Citizens (SCs) aged 25 and above will receive an opening credit of S$500.

The Singapore Government will provide periodic top-ups to SkillsFuture Credit and as there is no expiry date, SC students may accumulate their SkillsFuture Credit and use it to pay the course fees of all SkillsFuture modular courses approved by MOE or WDA (as listed in the SkillsFuture Credit directory).

Government Subsidy for SkillsFuture Courses

The approved SkillsFuture modular course fees subsidy from the Government of Singapore is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and is offered to all Singapore Citizens taking MOE-approved SkillsFuture modular courses and who satisfy the criteria listed in the next paragraph. The MOE-approved SkillsFuture modular course fees subsidy for each student is a percentage of the full modular course fees charged by UniSIM. This course fee subsidy is valued at 55% of the course fee. Students who are eligible for the course fees need only pay the difference between the full fees (set by the University) and the subsidy from MOE.

Only Singapore citizens are eligible for the fee subsidies. They must meet the following criteria to be eligible for the SkillsFuture modular course fee subsidies:
  • Applicants have not previously received a government subsidy for the same course; and
  • Applicants must be at least 21 years of age; and
  • Applicants must have either 2 years of full-time work experience, or have fully discharged full-time NS liability, or are currently employed on a full-time basis; and
  • Are enrolled as Credit students

The subsidy does not cover:
  • Resit fee
  • Extra courses taken beyond the requirements for the undergraduate degree programme
  • Auxiliary charges like administrative fees (e.g., course choice amendment, deferment, transfer of programme, challenge exam fee, exam appeal, etc.), overseas travel expenses, etc.
  • Any penalty charges (e.g., late fee payment)
  • Any other miscellaneous fees

SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy

Singapore Citizens (SCs) aged 40 and above who are pursuing MOE-approved SkillsFuture modular courses with UniSIM will enjoy higher subsidy with effect from 1 July 2015. The availability of the SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy will be tied to a SC student's eligibility for Government Subsidised courses. Hence, a SC student must be eligible for the Government Subsidised courses in order to be eligible for the enhanced subsidy.

With this enhanced subsidy, SC students aged 40 and above (to be counted based on the year which he/she turns 40 years old) will pay course fees that are 60% lower than the standard subsidised fees payable by other SC students who are below 40 years old.

Below is an illustrative example of how the fees are computed for a UniSIM course for a SC aged below 40 and a SC aged 40 and above:

​​​
​SC aged below 40
(Course Fee incl. of GST)
​SC aged 40 and above
