EduTrust is a voluntary certification scheme that helps to distinguish higher quality players in Singapore's private
education industry. As part of the EduTrust requirements, the Council for Private Education (CPE) has put in place
mandatory requirements which include Fee Protection Scheme and the use of a standard PEI-Student Contract.

Fee Protection Scheme

Under the Fee Protection Scheme, Kaplan Higher Education Institution has put in place an insurance arrangement
that ensures fees paid by students to the school are insured by Lonpac Insurance Bhd, a Council for Private
Education (CPE) appointed service provider. The insurance protection 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. The FPS is compulsory for all local and
international students taking courses at PEIs seeking EduTrust certification. FPS applies to all courses with duration
of more than 1 month or 50 hours. Students enrolled in these courses will be required to pay a fee for FPS which
varies depending on the fees of the courses insured.

Standard Student Contract

It is a mandatory requirement by the CPE that all students, both local and international, sign the student contract
with Kaplan Higher Education Institute upon acceptance of the offer made by Kaplan Higher Education Institute
during the admission process (Note: student contract will not be required for non-award programs with a duration
of less than 50 hours or 1 month).The student contract serves to minimize future disputes and hence has to be
completely understood by students prior to making course fee payments. Please refer to CPE website
( for details on EduTrust, Fee Protection Scheme and Standard PEI-student Contract.

Refund Policy
Kaplan Higher Education Institute shall inform the student within 3 working days if:
i. it fails, for any reason, to commence the course on the course commencement date.
ii. it terminates the course, for any reason, prior to the course commencement date.
