Private Education Institution Graduate Employment Survey 2016/17

The Committee for Private Education (CPE) conducts an annual Private Education Institution (PEI) Graduate Employment Survey (GES) for graduates from full-time bachelor’s level External Degree Programmes (EDPs) in Singapore, to survey the employment outcomes of fresh PEI graduates. The PEI GES aims to help prospective students make informed decisions on their education choices. It is mandatory for all PEIs offering EDPs to participate in the survey. Similar surveys have been conducted for graduates of Autonomous Universities, polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education. To find out more about PEI GES 2016/17, please refer to our press release.

Notes to Table 1:
* Results of PEIs based on a small sample size of fewer than 30 full-time fresh PEI degree graduates may not be representative of the institution’s graduate employment outcomes. Users should exercise caution in interpreting the data.
 
# This PEI was formerly known as Ngee-Ann Adelaide Education Centre.

  1. Fresh graduates are defined as those who did not have full-time permanent work experience.
  2. The employment rates refer to the number of graduates employed as a proportion of graduates in the labour force (i.e. those who were working, or not working but actively looking and available for work) around six months after completing their final examinations.
  3. Overall employment includes all types of full-time, part-time, temporary and freelance employment.
  4. Full-time permanent employment refers to employment of at least 35 hours a week and where the employment is not temporary. It includes those on contracts of one year or more.
  5. Gross monthly salary pertains only to full-time permanently employed graduates. It comprises the basic salary, fixed allowances, over-time pay and commissions, before deductions of the employee’s CPF contributions and personal income tax. Employer’s CPF contributions, bonuses, stock options, other lump sum payments, and payments-in-kind are excluded.
  6. Response rate refers to the percentage of graduates from full-time EDPs in PEIs who responded to the survey.
