The National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) are two prominent universities in Singapore, and both are publicly funded institutions. The tuition fees for international students are typically higher than those for domestic students.
However, the specific tuition fees for each university and program can vary, so it’s essential to refer to the most recent information available on their official websites or other official sources to get accurate and up-to-date details.
