How much it costs to get a degree

There is an article in the Sunday Times today with a table showing the comparative costs of getting a degree from countries like Australia, US, UK, Germany and China and what it would cost for a Singaporean to study in Singapore.

The numbers, it can cost up to $262k for an Australian degree, $217k for US, $141k for UK, $64.6k for Germany and $57k for China. These numbers include living expenses and accommodation.

The cost of getting a degree in Singapore for a Singaporean is between $30k to $87k for tuition fees alone, excluding living expenses. For living expenses, a sum of $60k to $100k can be added to give the equivalent full cost of getting a degree.

For Singaporean parents that have to send their children overseas for a degree, the difference to pay can be quite substantial in the case of Australia, UK and USA.

Study abroad in Singapore is managed by the Ministry of Education (MOE),which controls the development and administration of state schools receiving government funding, but also has an advisory and supervisory role in respect of private schools. Thanks for blogging...
