Dispute and Grievance Resolution Process

A student dispute or grievance may arise from any aspect of their educational experience at Kaplan Singapore which they believe to be unfair, unjust or unreasonable. This would include unsatisfactory services (e.g. poor teaching quality, changes to the curriculum, and delays in awarding certificates).

Where University or Kaplan Singapore policies and procedures exist in relation of student discipline and academic matters (e.g. appeals against results, expulsion, and suspension) then these will take precedence over the dispute and grievance process.

A student who is seeking dispute or grievance resolution should follow the 3 Steps Dispute and Grievance Resolution Process outlined below. Each step should be completed before going to the next step. 

* In the event that the student and Kaplan Singapore are unable to resolve the dispute or grievance amicably, either party may approach CPE’s Student Services Centre (SSC) for help. SSC will review the issue and may refer the dispute to CPE Mediation – Arbitration Scheme. If the dispute is not resolved through mediation at Singapore Mediation Centre, the dispute will be referred for arbitration by an arbitrator appointed by the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators.

** For university programmes, student may request for a review of their dispute or grievance by the university (for academic matters), in the event that they remain dissatisfied with the outcome after going through the above 3 step process.

Step 1

Send an email to student’s Programme Manager (PM). The email will be acknowledged within 2 working days upon receiving the email.

The PM will investigate your dispute / grievance and will provide a resolution within 7 working days from the acknowledgement email.

Significant effort will be placed in seeking a resolution within the operational level.

Significant effort will be placed in seeking a solution within the school or department level.
