Withdraw from uni and re-apply next year

As the title suggests, may I know if you will be blacklisted by the universities after dropping out?

Would like to know if it is possible to re-apply next year as a fresh applicant.

Yes year 1. Thinking of re-applying next year because it's a different uni.

If is a local uni, u would have consumed tuition grant, and will have to pay unsubsidised fees for your new programme. Suggest u go research on that and plan ur finances as well.

Hi! I came across your post and I was wondering if you were a freshie planning to withdraw from uni as well. So am I! I was wondering if you knew anything about the tuition grant thing? As in if I do withdraw from my uni then would I have to pay liquidated damages as well? Just to clarify I am also planning to reapply next year. Thanks! And I hope you're doing okay!

I think liquidated damages only apply to non-citizens (that is FTs and SPRs). They have to execute an agreement with MOE in order to get tuition grants, etc.

Hi I came across your post as well, yes you are right about that. From what I have read so far, it seems like only the first sem will not have tuition grant in your new uni (since you have already used it for first sem now).

I have not heard about liquidated damage, do you mind explaining?

I see, you are definitely not alone so don't be afraid to make a choice if you are certain of what you want.

Thanks, you too. It would be great if we could discuss via private message

withdraw and reapply will be a better approach as your gpa will be reset and not carried over

MOE grant will be consumed partially - i.e u studied for one semester in a 3 year program. Then when u start the new program, u will be given only 2 1/2 years worth of tuition grant.

Anyway check with your school if they provide in-house grants, e.g NTU if u overshot your MOE grant, they will help to take over the grant but you have to pay the 7% gst.

Hi all, I am/was a year 1 freshie at NTU. Decided to withdraw for reasons i won't state here, but i can share my knowledge as far as MOE tuition grant is involved. Went down to MOE customer service centre(yeah i know, wth? they have a service centre?) and was infd by the staff there that every sinkie is granted 8 semesters(basically 4 years) worth of tuition grants. What it meant for me, as a local student intending to withdraw in my first sem was that I'd have consumed 1 sem worth of tuition grant. So if I were to reapply for uni in the future, I'd have to pay 1 sem worth of unsubsidised fees as my quota is now 7 sems. However if I pick a course that is 3 years/6 sems, then all the sems would be covered by tuition grant.

Hope this helps

Interesting. I always thought they'll only give you 8 semesters if you take an honours year.
