To comply with the requirements of EduTrust, the FPS is implemented to cover both local and international students for course fees payment. The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect the students’ fees in the event a Private Education Institution (PEI) is unable to continue operations due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. Furthermore, 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.
There are two schemes that a Private Education Institution can choose from – the Escrow Scheme and the Insurance Scheme.
