You will need to apply online using the e-Service at least 2 months and not more than 3 months before your course begins.
You do not need to be in Singapore while your application is being processed. As such, we recommend you apply for a Student’s Pass before arriving in Singapore as you cannot extend your stay while processing is underway. If your application is approved, you can then enter Singapore to complete the formalities required to issue your Student’s Pass.
If you want to continue taking the same course at the same kindergarten or childcare centre or attend a different kindergarten or childcare centre, you can apply for a Student’s Pass using the e-Service at least four weeks before your course begins.
