Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Education, said that higher education in Singapore is significantly subsidised.
For example, over 70 per cent of Institute of Technical Education students received financial aid or scholarships.
Additionally, course fees at ITE carry over a 90 per cent subsidy.
The Ministry of Education’s financial assistance schemes are support up to two-thirds of students enrolled in post-secondary institutions. Other merit-based scholarships defray students’ fees and school-related expenses.
