Established in 2000, SMU’s mission is to generate leading edge research with global impact and produce broad-based, creative and entrepreneurial leaders for the knowledge-based economy. It is known to be a pioneer in Singapore for its interactive and technologically – enabled pedagogy of seminar-style teaching in small class sizes which remains its unique hallmark.

Home to about 8,000 students, SMU comprises six schools: School of Accountancy, Lee Kong Chian School of Business, School of Economics, School of Information Systems, School of Law and School of Social Sciences, offering a wide range of bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degree programmes in business and other disciplines.

Through executive education, the university provides public and customised training for working professionals in meeting the needs of the economy. Close relationships with leading universities, including The Wharton School, Carnegie Mellon, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, allow SMU to draw on their academic and research strengths in various collaborations.

Financial Aid

To assist students with their fees, we have in place a comprehensive financial aid initiative consisting of generous tuition fee loan schemes, bursaries, and a student employment scheme. These schemes are open to students who are on the Singapore Government tuition grant. Those who are not eligible for the tuition grant or choose not to apply for it will not be eligible for any form of financial aid.

Students may apply for loans through a combination of the following schemes. You may use the Student Financial Aid calculator to help determine if you are eligible and to find out the type and quantum of financial aid that you may qualify for.

Tuition Fee Loan

This scheme allows students to take up a tuition fee loan covering up to 90% of the subsidised tuition fees payable by Singapore citizens. It is interest – free during the course of study at SMU. Interest computation and repayment start after graduation, with a maximum repayment period of 20 years.

Study Loan

Needy students may take up the study loan covering up to the remaining 10% of the subsidized tuition fees payable by Singapore citizens. Students also receive an annual living allowance of S$3,600.

  1. Loan quantum is 90% of fees payable by Singapore citizens
  2. Loan quantum is 10% of fees payable by Singapore citizens
    Study loan comes with an annual living allowance of S$3,600
    Central Provident Fund ( CPF ) Education Scheme.

This scheme allows students to use their own CPF savings or that of their parents to pay for their tuition fees.

SMU Education Loan

Needy students who have taken the tuition fee and study loans may seek further financial help by borrowing up to S$5,000 per year through the SMU Education Loan. To be eligible, students’ monthly gross household per capita ( average ) income must be less than S$1,700. The maximum repayment period is 5 years. Eligible students must have utilised all other loan schemes, for example, the tuition fee loan, study loan, CPF Education loan, etc.

As this scheme is never intended to fully support tuition fees and living expenses, students, especially foreign students, must ensure that they have the financial means to subsist in Singapore for the duration of their studies in SMU.

Other Loans, Bursaries and Grants

Other schemes include notebook financing, study abroad financing, bursaries, community service project financing, and book allowance.
