At NIM, all feedbacks (including complaints, compliments and disputes) are taken very seriously. Students have multiple channels to lodge their feedback and complaints feedback forms, websites, emails, telephone calls, fax, letters, meetings, and orientations, etc.
NIM will resolve all feedbacks within 21 working days. Student service staff will acknowledge any feedback within 3 working days.
NIM strives to provide holistic care for our students – to gain balance in the various aspects of physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual development. The Guidance and Counselling Team consist of senior staff to assist students in the four main domains listed above.
Dispute Resolution Mechanism
For clear-cut fee refund issues of less than SGD$10,000, student can lodge their case with Small Claims Tribunal (SCT). For amounts that exceed SGD$10,000 but is below SGD$20,000, the claim can still proceed with SCT if both parties consent to it in writing.
For complaints of other nature, students can choose to participate in the CPE’s appointed Dispute Resolution Scheme (CPE Mediation-Arbitration Scheme) or engage own legal counsel.
