Private Education Act

The Private Education Act was gazetted in October 2009 to provide the Committee for Private Education (CPE) with the legislative powers to regulate the private education sector more effectively and improve its quality. CPE has implemented a mandatory registration scheme to ensure the standards that private education providers will need to adhere to. A quality assurance framework, known as EduTrust certification, was also introduced to provide a quality differentiation mechanism for those intending to recruit international students.

EduTrust

Under the EduTrust Certification Scheme, private education providers must adopt a Fee Protection Scheme with the CPE-appointed service providers and provide medical insurance coverage for hospitalisation and related medical treatment throughout the entire course duration.

The PEI-Student Contract clearly states the following:

  • Course title with modules or subjects clearly listed

The Processing Time and Outcome

The timeline provided by the Immigration Checkpoint Authority of Singapore (ICA) is 4 weeks. However, some applications are processed faster, and other slower. We recommend that students submit clear copies of the above documents to minimize any delay.

Upon completion of the application process, your course consultant will contact you with the necessary documents for you to enter Singapore. Successful applicants will receive an In-Principal Approval (IPA) letter that must be presented at the immigration counter upon your arrival in Singapore.

* This is a very important document and should not be misplaced!

Conversion from IPA to Student Pass

An IPA letter is only valid for a limited duration for entry to Singapore. Students who are able to arrive early are encouraged to do so to convert their IPA into a valid Student Pass. After conversion, the Student Pass will be your permit to remain in Singapore till the completion of the course.

To convert your IPA into a student pass, the following documents must be presented at the appointment provided:

Cancelling, Changes, and Replacements

At the end of your study, Auston Institute will assist students to cancel their student pass. ICA regulations require that a student pass is cancelled within 7 days of the course completion or termination of their study. Upon cancellation, students will receive a social visit visa and are expected to return to their home country within the validity.

While the student pass is still valid, students are required to inform Auston Institute of any changes in their details (contact information, residential address, name, etc) within 14 days of any such change. Any such notification must be done by emailing [email protected] and visiting Student Service in person.

If you lose your student pass, students must inform ICA within 7 days. The replacement procedure will require a number of things and we will help you through it. If this has happened to you, contact us at [email protected].

Continuing Studies and Renewal

The student pass is only valid for your current course of study. When you change course, or progress onto a higher level course, the student pass must be renewed. In order to do this, please be sure to confirm your renewal status, before the expiry of your current student pass. To do this, please contact us at [email protected]
