SINGAPORE'S four Government-funded universities, five polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) have raised their tuition fees for the next academic year.

As with previous hikes, the increase will be bigger for permanent residents and foreigners than for citizens.

At polytechnics and the ITE, the fee increase will affect new and existing students. At the universities, only the incoming freshmen will be affected. Tuition fees for male students who applied for places before their national service will be pegged to the date of their applications.
