SkillsFuture Credit (SFC)

  • Only self-sponsored Singapore Citizens can use SFC to pay for their course fee (in part or in full). Please click here to check the course's eligibility before applying.

  • Learners whose course fees are paid by their company are not allowed to later switch to self-sponsored status using their SFC funding.

  • SFC is for course fees only. Application fee and all other payments should be made via eNets or credit card (VISA/MasterCard).

  • SFC is only claimable within 60 days before the course start date (date inclusive).

  • Select the on-screen prompt at the end of your registration via MyIAL to use SFC Credit.
  • You cannot use the additional SkillsFuture Credit (Mid-Career Support) of $500 available from 1 Oct 2020 for IAL courses as our courses currently do not fall under the 'Career Transition Programmes' category.
