Private Education Institution Graduate Employment Survey 2021/2022
SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) 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 economically active 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 are conducted for graduates of Autonomous Universities, polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education. To find out more about PEI GES 2021/22, and the comparative graduate employment outcomes from other GES, please refer to our media release.
About 8,800 individuals completed full-time bachelor’s level EDPs at PEIs between May 2021 and April 2022, out of which 41.1% responded to the PEI GES survey. Detailed results of the survey can be found below.
Definitions of the employment indicators can be found in Annex A of the media release.

1 Results of PEIs with fewer than 10 respondents are not published as there are too few economically active fresh graduate respondents for the data to be meaningful.
2 Response rate refers to the percentage of graduates from full-time degree programmes in PEIs who responded to the survey.
3 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.
