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.
The Certificate of PEI Escrow Establishment as follows:
The Master Escrow Agreement dated 22 December 2009 as follows:
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 Escrow account. NIM’s appointed FPS provider is Development Bank of Singapore (DBS).

Fee Protection under the ESCROW Scheme
Under the escrow scheme, PEIs are not allowed to collect any money from their students.

Funds in the account are disbursed to the PEI on a regular basis only if specific conditions are met.
What Fees are protected?
EduTrust-certified PEIs are required to adopt the FPS to provide full protection for all fees paid by their students. Fees refer to all monies that are paid to the PEI by the student to be enrolled in the PEI.
