1Student Contract

  With the aim of enhancing confidence of students and their parents in the quality of education in Singapore, CPE has stipulated that all PEIs must sign a PEI-Student Contract with students. The contract is a legal document that lays out the important terms and conditions governing the relationship between the students and the school.
  In compliance with this requirement, Nexus International School (Singapore) signs a Student Contract with every student whom has been offered a place and has accepted the place.  For students who are younger than 18 years of age, their parents or legal guardians will be required to sign the contract on their behalf.
  The terms in the Nexus International School (Singapore) Student Contract are guided by the template provided by the CPE. It gives the detailed breakdown of total fees payable (by the student) together with a payment schedule that gives the exact dates payments are due. Nexus will honour the terms and conditions defined in this contract. Two sets of Student Contract are to be signed before fee payment is made and the students (parents or legal guardians) must return one set of the signed Student Contract to Nexus International School (Singapore).
  Cooling-Off Period
  There will be a cooling-off period of 7 working days after signing the Student Contract. Students have the right to cancel the contract within 7 working days and be entitled to the Maximum Refund amount stipulated in the contract (less any course fees consumed by the Student if the withdrawal date is later than the course commencement date). After the cooling-off period, Nexus International School (Singapore)'s refund policy will apply.
  Queries regarding the student contract can be directed to the Admissions Department.

2Fee Protection Scheme (FPS)

  The CPE requires course fees paid by students to be protected. Nexus has in place a Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) to protect the paid fees of all students. The FPS serves to protect the student’s fees in the event that the School is unable to continue operations due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. In addition, the FPS protects the student if the School fails to pay penalties or return fees to the student arising from judgments made against it by the Singapore courts.
  Nexus has appointed Lonpac Insurance Bhd, a CPE-appointed service provider, as our FPS insurance provider. Under the FPS insurance scheme, students’ fees are insured by Lonpac Insurance Bhd. In case of events, as stated above, students will be able to claim their paid fees from Lonpac Insurance Bhd.

  The insurance coverage shall commence from the date of payment of the fees till the due date of the next payment or the course end date whichever is earlier.
  Certificate of Insurance (COI)
  Upon payment of the insurance premium, Lonpac Insurance Bhd will issue a Certificate of Insurance to the insured Student directly via email, for cash, cheque and credit card payments. For payments via Electronic Funds Transfer, the COI will be issued to the Student within three (3) banking dates after the date of payment. 
  More details of the FPS can also be found in the FPS Instruction Manual, available at
