The registration fee and the first instalment are paid upon approval of the student application.

Deferral of payments

Student accounts and payment plans are subject to time limitations. Failure to comply with your financial obligations will result in the suspension of your account and/or application and you will not be able to submit the assignments or participate in the assessments. Reactivation of your account on our on-line learning environment incurs a late fee of EUR 300/USD 350/SDG 500. If you opt to resume your studies at a much later date, your current payment plan may be rendered void.
Thus, we have to call you to certify the reason for the deferral of your tuition fees payment and the extenuating circumstances that have affected (and/or may affect in the immediate future) your ability to meet your obligations and/or complete assessments.
Remember that, to be considered valid, extenuating circumstances must meet the definition that they: have a significant impact on your ability to meet your obligations and/or complete assessment(s), are exceptional, are outside your control, and occurred during or shortly before the deadline in question. Examples of serious, significant situations that Saint Thomas Polytechnic is likely to consider valid extenuating circumstances include:
  • Your own health problems, including major accident or injury, acute ailments, hospitalisation (including for operations), or those affecting a significant period of study
  • Personal or psychological problems for which you are receiving counselling, or have been referred to a counsellor or similarly qualified practitioner
  • Clinical depression or other significant mental health issue
  • Pregnancy-related conditions and childbirth (including a partner in labour)
  • Bereavement causing significant impact
  • Separation or divorce of yourself or your parents
  • Recent burglary, theft or serious car accident
  • Jury service which cannot be deferred
  • For part-time students in full-time employment, exceptional pressure of work or permanent change of employment circumstances
  • Late diagnosis of, for example, dyslexia, meaning you have not had the appropriate support for assessment, including provision in exams
  • A significant change to your financial circumstances after enrolment 
  • Interviews for placements, but only in cases where you have asked the employer or provider to reschedule, but this has not been possible
  • Significant positive life events, such as weddings of close family members, where you can show that no alternative arrangement, such as the date or your attendance, is possible
All claims for extenuating circumstances must be supported by independent, reliable documentary evidence that confirms the nature and timing of the circumstances. Examples of corroborating evidence likely to be acceptable include:
  • A medical note confirming a mental or physical health condition, provided at the time when you were suffering from that condition.
  • A letter from a counsellor, confirming a personal, psychological or emotional problem for which you have been receiving counselling. 
  • An official document such as a police report including a police reference number, court summons or other legal document
  • A letter from a solicitor, social worker, faculty member or other official agency
  • An insurance claim document supported by a letter from the insurance company.
  • For part-time students in full-time employment, wishing to make a claim based on exceptional pressures in their employment, a letter from your employer that confirms the particular circumstances, explains why they are exceptional and outside your control and formally supports your claim. If you are self-employed, you must provide independent evidence to support the claim that the pressures are exceptional and outside your control.
Each extenuating circumstance claim will be considered individually and all students will be treated fairly and equitably. The decision will take into consideration the nature, timing and severity of the problem and the impact it has had on the student.

Documents Falsification

If at any time, including after an applicant has enrolled in the Graduate School and commenced coursework, it is discovered that false information, omissions, and/or misstatements are made in an application – including but not limited to the uploading of copies of transcripts that differ in any substantive way from the official transcripts/ documents – admission, registration, and credit(s) for course work completed may be voided, and information relating to the false information, omissions, and/or misstatements may be distributed to other academic institutions, governmental agencies, and/or other third parties.

Refund Policy

We recognise that there may be circumstances where you wish to withdraw from the programme and seek a refund of your tuition fees. Tuition fees will be refunded on a monthly pro rata basis in the following instances:

Withdrawal of a unit or module. Saint Thomas Polytechnic undertakes to deliver its programmes with reasonable care and skill. It will make every effort to ensure that the information described in the prospectus, on the website and in other documents is accurate and up to date. However, it reserves the right to make changes to published information which it will endeavour to notify you of as soon as is practical.

Overpayments. If Saint Thomas Polytechnic receives tuition fee payments above the total tuition fee charged a refund will be processed unless the overpayment is due to a period of suspense. Refunds are returned to the original payer of the most recent payment via the same method the payment was received by. In order to process refunds Saint Thomas Polytechnic may contact the student or original payer to ask them to provide additional information, such as proof of the original payment origin from a bank account statement.

Deposit payments will NOT be refunded where a visa application to physically travel to Singapore is refused for any reason. Also, if a student who receives part funding or discounts for their tuition fees withdraws from their course the tuition fee will not be refunded.
