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 – Skills Future Singapore (SSC). Under the new structure, the SSC 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 (PEls) 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 PEls 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 (

Cooling-Off Period

There will be a cooling-off period of 7 working days after signing the PEl-Student Contract. Students have the right to cancel the contract within the 7 working days and be refunded the highest percentage of the fees already paid if the students submit written notice of withdrawal to SIM PL within the cooling off period (refer to Clause 2.3 of PEl-Student Contract). 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 preassigned 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 also be found in the FPS Instruction Manual, available at website

Medical Insurance

SIM PL has in place a group medical insurance scheme for all its students. This medical insurance scheme will have a minimum coverage as follows: an annual coverage limit of S$20.000 per student, covers up to B2 ward in government and restructured hospitals and provides for 24 hours coverage in Singapore and overseas (if student is involved in SIM PL-related activities) throughout the course duration.
