Graduate Employability After Course Completion
All statistics are based on the Kaplan Graduate Employment Survey 2020 conducted by Forbes Research Pte Ltd between 7 January–6 April 2021, for graduating cohorts between June 2019–May 2020. Respondents include all full-time graduates: 497; and all part-time graduates: 638. This survey is not the same survey as conducted by the Committee for Private Education (CPE). As a result, the CPE Graduate Employment Survey may not be directly comparable due to some differences in sample size scope between the two surveys.
