What is FPS?
The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect students’ fees in the event that a Private Education Institute (PEI) is unable to continue operating due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The FPS also protects students if the PEI fails to pay penalties or return fees to the students arising from judgement made against it by the Singapore courts.
EduTrust-certified PEIs are required to adopt the FPS to provide full protection for all fees paid by their students. Fees refer to all monies paid by the students to be enrolled in a PEI, excluding the course application fee, agent commission fee (if applicable), miscellaneous fees (non-compulsory and non-standard fee paid only when necessary or where applicable, for example, the re-exam fee or charges for credit card payment etc,) and GST.
PEIs can choose to adopt either the escrow scheme, insurance scheme, or a combination of both to provide fee protection for all their students.
Fee Protection under the Insurance Scheme:
Under the fee insurance scheme, PEIs will purchase insurance protection from any one of the CPE-appointed insurance companies for every one of their students to protect their fees.
Students studying in an EduTrust-certified PEI may be required to pay fees of up to a maximum of 12 months of their course to their PEI.
The CPE-appointed insurance companies are AXA Insurance Singapore Pte Ltd (AXA) and Lonpac Insurance Bhd.
