EduTrust for Education

EduTrust for Education aims to ensure that Private Education Institution (PEI) has the systems and processes in place to provide proper corporate governance. At the same time, PEIs are also expected to put in place proper systems and processes to ensure provision of high quality educational service to students.

  • Clear course fee policies;
  • Well-defined student redress practices and systems;
  • Disclosure of commitment to quality; and
  • Assurance of well-trained academic and administrative personnel.

Hence, EduTrust aims to raise the current standards of the education industry service providers eventually to achieve the vision of Singapore being an education hub. This scheme forms part of the Education Excellence Framework by the Singapore government to provide the highest possible standards of academic, organizational and student protection and welfare practices.

The EduTrust for Education is mandatory for all PEIs with international students.

The PEI – Student Contract is a legally binding contract between Parkway College and its students that embodies the following mandatory requirements:

a. Clear definition of course details – course title, pre-requisites, qualification awarded, course duration;

b. Full disclosure of course fees and miscellaneous fees;

c. Clear definition of refund policies; and

d. Clear definition of dispute resolution mechanisms.

All students, both local and international, will be issued with a PEI – Student Contract upon enrolment into a course. The PEI – Student Contract can be viewed: http://www.cpe.gov.sg/

 

Under EduTrust for Education, Parkway College will provide a Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) for both local and international students enrolled by the PEI.

The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect unconsumed course fees paid by students in the event a PEI 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 PEIs 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.

Parkway College working with the insurer, Lonpac Insurance Bhd, has put in place an Insurance Scheme as its FPS for international and local students.
