  • We inevitably support CPE’s transparency guidelines and policies with regards to fairness in all dealings with our students’ matters. As such, we have in place a Student Services Policy that states our service quality philosophy, service guarantees, refund grievances policy and feedback mechanism.

    In accordance with CPE’s guidelines, I declare the following:
    1. Grievances Policy

    A grievance is defined as any form of unhappiness, displeasure or dissatisfaction relating/arising from the course of study or any issues with the school’s conduct or operations that will have adverse impact and effects on the students or/and student concern.

    General Guidelines:

    - An aggrieved student must abide and follow the grievance procedure, and must represent himself/herself at all stages of the grievance procedure. Click here to view Grievance Procedure.
    - Meetings at each stage of the procedure shall be made, wherever possible, during regular working hours. When circumstance(s) requires meetings outside regular hours, there must be a general consensus between both parties.
    - Failure of the school to reply to the student’s grievance within the stipulated time specified, grants the student the authority and option to take the grievance to the next step.

    If the student fails to appeal from one step to the next step within the stipulated time period, the grievance shall be considered settled on the basis of the school’s last decision and the grievance will not be subject to further appeal or consideration.

    2. Third Party Mediation

    In the event that the Student and the PEI are unable to resolve a dispute in accordance with the grievance procedure referred to in Grievances Policy, the Student and the PEI shall refer the dispute to the Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC) or Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) through the CPE Student Services Centre for mediation prior to instituting any legal action or proceedings. The Student and the PEI hereby agree to such procedures and to pay such fees as the Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC) or Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) may prescribe from time to time for the purpose of resolving their dispute.

    3. Graduates from FZD School of Design will receive a certificate of attendance for maintaining a minimum attendance requirement or a certificate of completion upon passing the assessment. Only one (1) certificate will be issued per student.

    I can assure you that all these measures are put into daily practice by our dedicated, caring, responsible and efficient staffs who will take the extra mile to assist the students.

    Besides providing outstanding programmes and safeguarding our students’ welfare, FZD School of Design Private Limited is an institution of excellence where staffs and students uphold the values of continuous learning and teamwork in a caring and challenging environment. I hope you will pursue your educational aspirations with us if you are interested in the entertainment industry. We look forward to welcoming you as a student at FZD School of Design Private Limited.
