SkillsFuture Funding


SkillsFuture Credit (SFC)

Introduced in 2015, all Singaporeans aged 25 and above will receive an opening credit of S$500. There is no expiration for this. From 1 Apr 2020, eligible Singaporeans can start using their one-off SkillsFuture Credit top-up of $500. This top-up will expire on 31 Dec 2025.

Only self-sponsored applicants can use SFC to offset the course fee of SFC eligible courses offered by IAL. Please click here to check if the course you are applying would qualify.

Applications to utilise your SFC are to be made 60 days before the course start date and as part of your registration process in MyIAL. For partial payment (SFC + cash), you are to complete the balance payment else your SFC application will be voided.

Please note that the additional SkillsFuture Credit (Mid-Career Support) of $500 available from 1 Oct 2020 could not be utilised for IAL courses as our courses currently do not fall under the ‘Career Transition Programmes’ category.
