Notification of Successful Admission
All applicants will be notified of their application status through phone or email. If you are successful in your application, an official acceptance letter will be issued to you within 14 days of approval via email.
Successful applicants are required to sign a formal Student Contract with FMDS. Refer here for the standard Student Contract adopted by FMDS as stipulated by the Committee for Private Education (CPE) is part of SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG).
Why is this important?
- The student contract is a critical document that governs the relationship between FMDS and the student. Prospective students should therefore understand and agree to the terms and conditions stated in the student contract before signing it.
- The process of executing student contracts is important as it allows for questions by prospective students to be answered by FMDS before the student is enrolled. A student contract that is explained clearly and understood by the student will minimize potential disputes between FMDS and the students.

Fee Protection Scheme
The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect students’ fees in the event a private education institution is unable to continue operating due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. 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.
EduTrust-certified private education institutions are required to adopt the Fee Protection Scheme to provide full protection to all fees paid by their students. All fees refer to all monies paid by the students to be enrolled in a private education institution, excluding the course application fee, agent commission fee (if applicable), miscellaneous fees (non-compulsory and non-standard fee paid only when necessary or where applicable, for example, the re-exam fee or charges for credit card payment etc,) and GST.
