NUS will freeze tuition fee increases for Singapore Citizens enrolled in government-subsidised programmes in Academic Year 2020 (AY2020). This will help mitigate the impact of costs to Singaporean households during these challenging times.
For the MD-PhD track, tuition fees comprise of two components, namely the government-subsidised MD programme and the non government-subsidised PhD programme.
For MD-PhD students admitted in Academic Year 2020-2021, annual tuition fees for the MD component are as follows:
- Singapore Citizens: SGD 47,050 * (GST subsidy provided)
- Singapore Permanent Residents: SGD 56,250 (GST subsidy provided)
- International Students: SGD 69,000 (inclusive of GST)
* Tuition fees payable from Year 2 is subject to further review.
For the PhD component, depending on the year in which students embark on their PhD programme, students will receive either of the following:
For MD-PhD students entering PhD programme before AY2018:
- A MD-PhD Pre-Research Scholarship shortly after beginning their PhD, equivalent in value to tuition fees paid for the first 2 years of MD programme; and
- A MD-PhD Final Year Scholarship in their final MD year, equivalent in value to the tuition fees payable for their final phase of MD studies.
For MD-PhD students entering PhD programme from AY2018:
A MD-PhD Tuition Support Scholarship shortly after beginning their PhD and upon starting their final phase of MD studies, equivalent in value to tuition fees paid for their first 2 years as well as their final phase of MD studies respectively. For the PhD component, MD-PhD students will receive:
- A scholarship covering 100% of tuition and miscellaneous fees payable for the 4-year duration; and
- A monthly stipend for the 4-year duration of the PhD.
