All PEIs in Singapore are required to be registered with the Council for Private Education. This ensures that the PEI meets certain set requirements in the areas of corporate governance, quality of provision, and information transparency. ERCI was effectively registered with CPE under the Enhanced Registration Framework on the 20th of May 2014. For more information, click here.
PEIs in Singapore are permitted to award certificates up to the Advanced Diploma level in their own name. University degrees should be awarded via partnerships with bona fide universities. All courses will have to be registered with CPE. For more information on ERCI courses registered with CPE, click here.
Students should be aware that recognition of certificates from PEIs, as well as degrees awarded by partner universities, for the purpose of employment or higher education, is entirely at the discretion of potential employers or institutes of higher learning.

Students should ensure that the PEI they enroll in is an active participant in the Fee Protection Scheme, i.e. the course fees that the student pays to the Institute has to be protected via insurance by a CPE-approved insurance provider. ERCI protects its students’ course fees via insurance provided by Lonpac Insurance Bhd. The insurance will be purchased within seven (7) working days of collection of course fees.

Students can continue to use the documents that have been issued by our appointed FPS provider (Lonpac Insurance Bhd)., such as certificates of insurance, to check on their fee protection status.

ERCI must purchase medical insurance coverage for all its full-time students to cover them for hospitalisation and related medical treatment throughout their course duration.

The following students can choose to opt out of the medical insurance scheme if they can show that they are already covered by their own medical insurance*:

  - Singapore citizens, permanent residents and international students not on the Student's Pass, and
  - Students under corporate sponsorship / agreement signed between the PEI and sponsor organisation.

*The minimum features for medical insurance are: (a) annual limit not less than S$20,000.00 per student; (b) at least B2 ward (in government and restructured hospitals); and (c) 24 hours coverage in Singapore and overseas (if student is involved in school-related activities).

Medical insurance is not applicable to part-time students and students taking courses with a duration of not more than one month or 50 hours.
