Private Education Act

Under the Private Education Act, legislated in December 2009, a Council for Private Education was set up to regulate the private education industry in Singapore. From 03 October 2016, the Council for Private Education became part of a new statutory board – SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG). Under the new structure, the SSG Board appointed the Committee for Private Education (CPE) to carry out its functions and powers relating to private education under the Private Education Act.

All Private Education Institutions (PEIs) are required to comply with the regulations under the Act in order to continue operations.

Following are the requirements which Singapore Institute of Management Pte Ltd (SIM PL) has put in place:

PEI-Student Contract

CPE, in aiming to enhance the confidence of students and their parents in the quality of education in Singapore, has stipulated that all PEIs must sign a PEI-Student Contract with students. The contract sets out the terms and conditions governing the relationship between the student and PEI. SIM PL will honour all terms and conditions in the contract and in all communication materials. Students may request for a copy of the PEI-Student Contract from SIM PL or view it on the SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) website at:
www.ssg.gov.sg

Cooling-Off Period

There will be a cooling-off period of 7 working days after signing the PEI-Student Contract. Students have the right to cancel the contract within the 7 working days and be refunded the highest percentage (as indicated under the refund table in the student contract) of the fees already paid if the students submit written notice of withdrawal to SIM PL within the cooling off period. After the cooling-off period, SIM PL’s refund policy will apply.

Fee Protection Scheme

SIM PL adopts a mandatory Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) to protect the paid fees of both local and international students. The FPS serves to protect the student’s fees in the event that the PEI is unable to continue operations due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. In addition, the FPS protects the student if the PEI fails to pay penalties or return fees to the student arising from judgments made against it by the Singapore courts.

SIM PL has appointed Etiqa Insurance Pte. Ltd. and Lonpac Insurance Bhd as our FPS insurance providers. Under the FPS insurance scheme, students’ fees will be insured by the FPS insurance provider pre-assigned by SIM PL. In case of events as stated above, students will be able to claim their paid fees from the respective FPS insurance provider. More details of the FPS can be found in the FPS Instruction Manual, available at:
www.ssg.gov.sg

 

Refund Policy

Withdrawal due to non-delivery of course

SIM PL shall refund the entire Course Fees and Miscellaneous Fees already paid by the Student if:

1. It does not commence the Course on the Course Commencement Date;

2. It terminates the Course before the Course Commencement Date;

3. It does not complete the Course by the Course Completion Date;

4. It terminates the Course before the Course Completion Date;

5. It has not ensured that the student meets the course entry or matriculation requirement as set by the awarding institution within any stipulated timeline set by CPE; or

6. The Student’s Pass application is rejected by Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

Refund for withdrawals due to non-delivery of course shall be made within 7 working days of the above notice should the student decide to withdraw.

Withdrawals due to other reasons (for qualification-based courses)

In the event that the students withdraw due to reasons other than those stated above, refund to students will be computed based on information at the following page

NOTES

For refund arising from a course-related request which requires approval from SIM PL and/or the University Partners (where applicable), e.g. transfer of course or leave of absence application, the refund request will only be accepted and processed after the course-related request has been approved.

Course Transfer, Withdrawal and Leave of Absence Policy

Students are to put up their request for course transfer, withdrawal and leave of absence via relevant forms/platforms. For students who are below the age of 18, the supporting documents must include the parent’s/legal guardian’s written consent to the student’s request.
