Fee Protection Scheme
The Singapore Government requires all Private Education Institutions in Singapore to protect any student fees paid in advance. The scheme ensures that if ECTA is unable to deliver its programmes due to closure for any reason, students can claim any fees which have been paid in advance. All students must be covered by this scheme. Protection is provided through an insurance policy taken out by ECTA on behalf of students.
ECTA uses CPE-appointed Insurer as the provider of all policies taken out as part of the fee protection scheme. The policy makes provision for the refund of unconsumed fees paid should ECTA close or be unable to deliver the course as detailed in the contract for any reason. The policy also provides for compensation in the case where ECTA fails to pay any sum awarded by Singapore Courts to the insured student.
As of 1 January 2018, the current premium is 0.6% (excluding GST) of the sum of all Course Fees and Administrative Fees per year subject to a minimum premium of S$25.00. The premium is paid by the student. The insurance will protect students against the following events:
- Loss of fees paid in advance by the insured student due to insolvency or regulatory closure of the school.
- Private Educator’s failure to pay sum awarded by Singapore courts to the insured student.

Administrative Fees cover practicum administration, professional indemnity, Swinburne material fees and online library, graduation in Singapore, and general administration.
