The National Silver Academy (NSA)  全国乐龄学苑 was set up following seniors’ feedback that they would like to keep learning in their later years. NSA is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and community-based organisations offering a wide range of learning opportunities to seniors.

The 3 main types of courses are: Short Courses, Exam-Free Modules and Ad Hoc Learning Opportunities. 

SkillsFuture Credit can be used on top of existing government course subsidies to pay for approved skills-related courses under the NSA.

SkillsFuture Credit can be used to cover both the course fees payable and the GST imposed on the course fees. Please read the course details on the website to check if the course is SkillsFuture Credit-eligible. 

All course fees indicated on the NSA website are after subsidies.
