Fee Protection Scheme

The Fee Protection Scheme (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 Fee Protection Scheme 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.

Currently, Nanyang Institute of Management (NIM) has in place a Fee Protection Scheme as stipulated by the Committee for Private Education (CPE) by way of an:

Fee Protection under the Insurance Scheme

Under the insurance scheme, Private Education Institutions(PEI) are allowed to collect fees directly from the students.
