Because of the top-notch educational system, high standard of living, cultural diversity, and many other factors, many students decide to study in Singapore. Students will discover an engaging atmosphere that brings students from all over the world together while pursuing their studies in Singapore. Additionally, there are many locations in and around Singapore that you can visit while studying there. Let me now give you a general sense of how much studying in Singapore will cost.

The standard tuition for universities in Singapore is SGD 26,000, or around INR 14,00,000. The cost of the Singaporean course ranges from 12 to 30 lakh rupees.

Tuition fee

  • In Singapore, undergraduate course tuition might cost between S$12,000 and S$15,000 per year.
  • The annual cost of tuition for the postgraduate programme would be between $18,000 and $25,000.
  • In Singapore, the annual cost of tuition for a PhD programme may be around S$36,000.

According to an HSBC analysis, Singapore has the second-highest cost of living for international students, at about SGD 28,000. For overseas students, the cost of food, transportation, books and stationery, and personal expenses can be at least SGD 1000 per month.

Other Costs:

  • The monthly cost of housing ranges from $400 to $800.
  • The cost of lodging typically varies based on the city where you reside. A great method to save your monthly expenses is to share an apartment with other students.
  • Monthly transportation costs typically vary from $50 to $80.
    The average monthly cost of food is between $300 and 450 Singapore dollars.

Some budgeting options include getting a student travel card to cut the cost of transportation.

Always have your student ID with you because it could entitle you to discounts at attractions, eateries, theatres, clothes stores, and more.

The cost of your accommodations will typically rely on the region you pick, so make a good decision. You can reduce the cost by doing part-time employment.

Another significant benefit is the exposure to a wide range of cultures and nationalities. Additionally, having a student pass or visa and having access to the same benefits as Singaporean citizens and permanent residents is an awesome experience. However, the ICA (Immigration Checkpoint Authority) is extremely rigorous regarding the no-working restriction, which is the main drawback.
