Understanding SkillsFuture Credits

SkillsFuture is a national initiative designed to foster a culture of continuous learning. With an initial credit and periodic top-ups, Singaporeans are encouraged to take ownership of their skills development and lifelong learning journey. But how do you keep track of your credits and ensure you’re making the most of them?

To take advantage of SkillsFuture, all Singaporeans can enjoy course fee subsidies and are given SkillsFuture credit to offset the cost of their learning in approved courses at selected education institutions. They get $500 of SkillsFuture opening credit which will not expire, and an additional top-up of $500 which is set to expire on 31 December 2025. 

Although they do not receive the SkillsFuture credit, Permanent Residents of Singapore (PR) will still get to enjoy the course fee subsidy at all SkillsFuture-approved institutions.

With SkillsFuture, individuals are empowered to develop their skills and take charge of their learning journey for a more fulfilling career.
