To comply with legislative changes surrounding goods and services tax on digital services, we have recently registered with the following countries for the collection of Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The Goods and Services Tax applies to digital services for which online education falls within this definition. Consequently, for some international students, we are required to charge Goods and Services Tax on your tuition fees.

If you are a resident of the following countries, this tax will be applied to your fees*:
- Saudi Arabia at the statutory rate of 15%

*The rate of applicable tax is subject to change. Please consult your local tax office for up-to-date information and guidance.
**Singapore GST will rise from 8% to 9% in January 2024.
