Fees are reviewed regularly and are differentiated by nationality to reflect the privileges of citizenship. The total fees collected in any given year would depend on the prevailing fees and the student enrolment in that year.
In general education, the school and miscellaneous fees collected from students in Government and Government-aided schools (GGAS) are set out in Table 1 below.

Overall, total fees collected from Singaporean students have gone up mainly because of a larger number of Singaporeans enrolled in post-secondary institutions, and some fee increases. For PR and international students, the increase in fee collection is primarily due to fee increases, as PR and international students face higher fee increases than locals.
