The Singapore Business School (hereafter: SBS) is committed to implementing the distance learning program, which is stated on page 1 of study contract, in line with the valid study and examination regulations. The contract is binding once the electronic confirmation of acceptance of the SBS is sent. Upon successful completion of the distance learning program, the student acquires the academic title dependent on the chosen study program in line with the valid study and examination regulations. The content of the offered courses and the respective time period corresponds to the curriculum, which is made available to the student on the corresponding page of the SBS Website.
The SBS has the right to modify study plans if it is reasonable for students and corresponds to the educational objective of the study program.
The contract has a defined maximum duration, which is stated on page 1. The contract starts on the date stated on page 1 and ends after the duration stated on page 1, without any notice of termination.
If the student wants to take the final examination (Capstone Project) before the end of the contract duration, his/her contract will end after the examination is passed successfully.
If the student does not acquire all necessary performance records within the contract duration agreed upon on page 1, the student may request in writing that the contract is extended, subject to a charge. If the student does not submit an application in time, (s)he will be exmatriculated.
The SBS may reject the application for a contract extension in justified cases.
To extend the contract duration (subject to a charge) according to this section, course fees have to be paid in return for the further use of the equipment and offers from the SBS. Details are regulated by a separate agreement to be finalized for the contract extension.
Students who withdraw from a program within the first two weeks of the start date will be entitled to a refund of 50% of the Tuition fees. Where fees paid in advance are less than 50% of the course fee, the balance will remain payable.
Students who withdraw from a program after two weeks following the start date, will not be entitled to any refund, and any fees outstanding will remain payable.
All withdrawals should be notified in writing to Student Services. The effective date for the calculation of any refund is the date stated on page 1.
If a student is on any installment fee payment plan, no refund will be provided.
The right to immediate termination of the contract for a reasonable cause remains unaffected. Important, justified causes for the student to qualify for immediate termination particularly include proven, unexpected unemployment, life-threatening illnesses as well as the death of a student. A change in the study program, relocation, failed exams, financial or family reasons are not justified causes for immediate termination.
Justified causes for the SBS to qualify for immediate termination particularly include outstanding tuition fees, breaches against the SBS’s examination rules, or a student’s criminal actions at the expense of the SBS.
In the case of illness or for other proven personal reasons, students may apply for a leave of absence for a period of up to six months. The leave of absence can take place, at the earliest, three months after the study start.
The bilateral rights and obligations of this contract lapse in this case for the duration of the leave of absence. The obligation to pay the total tuition fees remains after the granting of the leave of absence to the student.
The application for a leave of absence of six months can be carried out with two weeks’ notice before the intended start of the leave of absence and must be in text form. The study contract cannot be terminated during a granted leave of absence. When applying for a leave of absence, the “Information for a leave of absence” and/or the "Information for a leave of absence due to maternity leave or parental leave" becomes an integral part of the distance learning contract.
Under no circumstances can leave of absence be converted to a refund.
In the event that a student fails an exam, which is necessary to pass in order to successfully complete the study program, the teaching contract ends without having to be terminated. In this case, the student will be exmatriculated.
The total costs of the chosen program are dependent on the chosen fields of study and are not dependent on the time model.
The total costs for the chosen study program are stated on page 1 of the study contract.
The tuition fees are payable in advance. The fee shall be payable exclusively in USD or Bitcoin, regardless of whether or not the student's place of residence is located within the USD currency area. The use of online payment systems shall be necessary. Debit/credit card payments (Visa or MasterCard) or Bitcoin payments will only be accepted via online payment systems. SBS will inform the student about the available online payment systems. All and any charges due to fee payments abroad shall be exclusively paid by the student. The payment for the education must have been received by SBS before the start of the study program. Otherwise, the student can’t start his/her studies.
If the student wants to take the final examination (Capstone Project) before the end of the contract duration decided upon in Section 2.1. the outstanding tuition fees for the remainder of the course, until the end, have to be paid in full before the date of the final examination.
If the tuition fees cannot be paid fully and on time by the student, the SBS is entitled to charge any applicable fees to the student’s invoice and claim them. Regardless of this, the SBS is entitled to terminate the contract due to extraordinary reasons, if the student is in default with fee payment.
The student is given three attempts to pass the final examination free of charge. If the student fails to pass the examination, an additional payment of 200 USD incurs for every attempt that he takes after.
If the student has to repeat an examination due to attempted cheating or the submission of something which has been plagiarized, an additional payment of 300 USD incurs for every examination that has to be reset.
Within 24 months of allocating the corresponding course, the student must take the final examination, even if just as a first attempt. If the student does not take the examination or even attempt it for the first time within the 24 months after the allocation of the course, all assessments taken up until then are void and have to be taken again within 12 months. Furthermore, the course will have to be taken again, which is subject to charges.
In some cases, the submission of academic achievements within certain modules or courses has to be undertaken via the usage of online tools, which need to process data also outside of the ASEAN. The details of the data processing are explained in the corresponding page of the SBS Website.
In order to enable SBS to verify his/her examination by plagiarism software, the student is obliged to provide an electronic copy of his/her examination. The actual document must be submitted as an electronic copy and in a readable format (e.g. DOC, DOCX, PDF, RTF) and must not contain any personal details (without a cover page, personal statements, dedications, signature, etc.).
The student acknowledges that the SBS and third parties, which are specially commissioned by SBS, have the right to use his/her work for this purpose.
All study content and media are protected by copyright. Any use for purposes other than contractually permitted is prohibited and requires the prior written consent of the copyright owner. This applies in particular to making these available via the internet, duplication, and disclosure to third parties. Saving and printing the study content and media for personal purposes is permitted.
The central learning processes and the organization of the study program will be handled internet-based via the SBS’s Learning Management System (hereafter: LMS). Providing necessary technical equipment is not included in the course fees. SBS’s LMS is password protected. The LMS entry details will be given to the student at the beginning of his/her study program and (s)he must assure that (s)he does not give these details to others. The student has to make sure, that unauthorized third parties cannot access the LMS or the program`s learning materials.
The details for the processing of personal data and the rights of the student related to this are explained in the information notice for data privacy, which can be obtained by the student via the Website of SBS.
In order to carry out the distance learning contract, SBS uses the software of different providers, which causes the processing of personal data also outside the ASEAN. The student declares consent that the SBS may store, collect, and use the student’s data which becomes known during the application process and the contract period. The student also agrees that his/her data may be forwarded to the authorities in cases regulated by law.
The SBS is liable for damages resulting from a breach of obligations due to intentional or gross negligence on the part of its legal representatives or auxiliary persons. The SBS is also liable for damages resulting from harm to life, body or health arising out of a breach of obligations due to the intentional or negligent breach of obligations on the part of the university’s legal representatives or auxiliary persons.
Beyond this, the liability for damages arising out of a breach of obligations due to negligence or slight negligence or due to an act committed with negligence or slight negligence on the part of its legal representatives or auxiliary persons is excluded, except for damages arising out of a breach of fundamental obligations whose compliance is necessary to achieve the goals of the contract or which arise out of the justified reliance upon the relationship set forth herein. With respect to these exceptions, the liability is limited to compensation for predictable damages.
For all claims referring to or in connection to this contract international law is applicable. If the student changes his/her legal domicile or habitual residence to a location outside of ASEAN after the conclusion of the contract or his domicile or habitual residence is unknown at the time of a filing of a lawsuit, the parties agree to the following: for any dispute arising out of this contract or in connection with this contract, the court with jurisdiction for the SBS will have jurisdiction.
SBS will not participate in a dispute settlement procedure according to the international law for dispute settlement.
The SBS has provided a private-sector guarantee in accordance with the legal requirements, which guarantees all students the completion of their studies regardless of the economic situation of the executing institution.
There are no subsidiary agreements to this contract. Modifications or amendments to this contract must be made in text form. Modifications or amendments to this provision must also be made in text form. Should one or more provisions of this contract be or become invalid, the remaining provisions remain unaffected. In the case of a regulatory gap within this contract, the contracting parties shall find a resolution that corresponds to the purpose and economic intent of the remaining contract.
