SINGAPORE - The Ministry of Education (MOE) said on Wednesday (Dec 9) it will not be making any changes to school fees for Singapore citizens, permanent residents and students from Asean.

However, there will be an increase of about 3 per cent in fees for non-Asean foreign students in government and government-aided schools, which takes effect from January 2021.

These students will pay $25 to $50 more per month. The revision is part of MOE's regular review of school fees.

Primary school education is free for Singaporeans, while those in secondary schools and at the pre-university level pay monthly fees of $5 and $6 respectively.

The standard miscellaneous fees also remain unchanged next year.
