Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses (GATE)
For students wishing to access GATE funding, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has implemented changes to their funding policy for all students. Students are now required to submit an online e-GATE application each semester for approval for funding.
Once your eligibility has been confirmed, and you have never accessed GATE funding using the online system, you would be required to visit any TTConnect location, to apply for e-GATE credentials to begin the process.
Documents required includes your original Birth Certificate, National ID or Passport and a valid email address.
After receiving your credentials from MOE, you will be required to forward this information to Course Administration so that the e-GATE application can be completed on your behalf.
More information regarding this process can be obtained from Course Administration.
These policies may change in July 2017. Students are advised to contact the Ministry of Education (MOE) for more details on the GATE policies for postgraduate funding.
