Primary 1 registration for international students

1. Overview

International students (IS) can only register for Primary 1 (P1) during Phase 3 of the P1 Registration Exercise. IS will continue to register under this phase, after all Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents have been allocated a place under the earlier phases of the P1 Registration Exercise. IS who intend to participate in Phase 3 of the P1 Registration Exercise will be required to undergo a 2-step process.

  • Step 1: Submit an online ‘indication of interest' form via the MOE P1 website from 2 to 8 June 2020. Those who do not do so by 8 June 2020 will not be able to register during Phase 3 of the P1 Registration Exercise.
  • Step 2: MOE will notify IS applicants who have indicated their interest via email in October 2020, as to whether their child can be offered a P1 place in a primary school. If a place is offered, the parent of the child will be informed of how to register with the designated school.

Check when your child is eligible for P1 registration

You can register your child in the 2020 P1 Registration Exercise if your child is born between 2 January 2014 and 1 January 2015 (both dates inclusive).
