    Fee Protection Scheme (FPS): Scheme to Protect Student Fees

    HFSE International School has implemented a Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) in strict accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Committee for Private Education (CPE). The primary aim of the FPS is to safeguard the financial interests of students in the event that HFSE International School faces insolvency or encounters regulatory closure. Additionally, the FPS provides a protective shield for students should the Private Education Institution (PEI) fail to fulfil its obligations, including penalties or refunds mandated by Singaporean courts.

    To ensure comprehensive financial security for its students, HFSE International School has engaged Liberty Insurance Pte Ltd, an insurance provider officially appointed by the Committee for Private Education (CPE), to administer insurance protection for each enrolled student.

    For clarity, "fees" encompass all monetary transactions made by students to the PEI for enrolment purposes. The following fees are excluded from FPS coverage when collected by the PEI:

    (i) **Course Application Fee: ** This fee is levied on students for the sole purpose of processing their application forms, enabling the PEI to assess their eligibility for course admission. Importantly, this application fee should not include any components intended to offset course fee payments.

    (ii) **Prevailing Goods and Services Tax (GST): ** GST, as mandated by government regulations, is not covered by the FPS.

    (iii) **Miscellaneous Fees: ** Any fees categorized as "miscellaneous" by the PEI are likewise exempt from FPS coverage.
