Graduate Employment Survey 2019 (Published 2020)

0

 
The top degree programmes this year are medicine, computing and law, in that order.

A surprise is the average salary of Yale-NUS Bachelor of Science with Honours graduates. At a whopping $7,139, the degree programme ranked 1st in our ranking table. However, if you check the survey results, the data was based on a small sample size. The high average could be due to just a couple of extreme outliers.

In the top 10 of our latest Graduate Employment Survey ranking (excluding the Yale-NUS one), law clinched 3 spots. Medicine, computing and business 2 spots each.

In terms of employability, Music, Industrial Design, and Art Design & Media ranked at the bottom.

In total, 90 degree programmes feature in this ranking.
