Post Secondary Education Scheme

Republic Poly Head Banner

This scheme allows students to use PSE Funds to pay for Tuition Fees as well as other fees.  Singaporeans or students with Singaporean siblings who have Post-Secondary Education Account (PSE) may apply. PSEA is not a bank account. It is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and is automatically opened for all eligible Singaporeans.

How to Apply

The Standing Order (SO) is a one-time application and the SO instructions will apply to all future withdrawals until the SO is terminated or replaced, regardless of which approved institution you attend.

If a student has already submitted SO in ITE, it will be transferred across and automatically be applied to his or her cost of Tuition and Supplementary Fees in Republic Polytechnic.
