The CPF Board has announced a seminar on tertiary education. The talk will cover the available financing options, information on the local polytechnics or universities, and education loans. The seminar will take place on 1 March 2018 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The on-the-spot registration for this session will be on the same day from 6:45 p.m. onwards.
The seminar will be held at Lifelong Learning Institute on 11 Eunos Road 8, next to Paya Lebar MRT. The closing date for the online registration is 28 February 2018. Seats are available on a first-come first-served basis. The registration fee is waived for CPF members.
The education system in Singapore is controlled by the Ministry of Education (MOE), which manages the development of schools and universities with government funding. The seminar will shed light on the best institutions offering tertiary education. The discussion will also include options on education loans you can choose or ways to pay your tuition fees without borrowing money from a bank.
Alternatively, you can pay for your child’s education fee under the CPF Education Scheme. This scheme lets you use your savings from your Ordinary Account (OA) to finance a tertiary education in the country. You can use up to 40% of your accumulated OA savings or your remaining OA balance.
