Fee Protection Scheme

Fee Protection Scheme

Introduction to the Fee Protection Scheme (FPS)

The FPS serves to protect students’ fees in the event a private education institution is unable to continue operating due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The FPS also protects students if the private education institution fails to pay penalties or return fees to the students arising from judgement made against it by the Singapore courts.

EduTrust-certified private education institutions are required to adopt the FPS to provide full protection to all fees paid by their students. All fees refer to all monies paid by the students to be enrolled in a private education institution, 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.

Beacon International College has adopted the FPS-Group Insurance scheme to provide fee protection to all their students. Under the FPS Group Insurance scheme, a Certificate of Insurance (COI) will be issued to the PEI by the FPS Insurance Provider with a determined insurable amount to cover all course fees to be collected by the PEI during the period of indemnity.
