The Singapore University of Social Sciences is offering students free classes if they get married or have children during their term of study.
To be eligible for this grant, the student must also be a Singaporean or Singaporean Permanent Resident, and the marriage or the birth/adoption of the child must be registered after July 23 this year.
The scheme is open to SUSS students enrolled in part-time conferred programmes, as well as postgraduate programmes.
Successful applicants can redeem two free modules, with a maximum of five credit units per module, or one 10-credit unit module.
This can save students up to a few thousand dollars.
Sociologist Paulin Straughan from Singapore Management University said the SUSS move is an innovative way to encourage young adults to integrate lifelong learning with family responsibilities.
