Summary of results from Student Barometer Autumn 2017


CPCE participated in the Student Barometer (SB) Autumn for the third consecutive year, and its performance continues to compare favorably with global benchmarks in many aspects of students’ experience. 

The SB Autumn, conducted by the independent research company “i-graduate”, is a global survey1 of students’ experience in areas of learning, living, support and arrival.   In 2017, CPCE received a high overall student satisfaction rate2 of 89.1%, which is line with the global benchmark. The survey among the local students of the participating institutions revealed that CPCE:  

  • Ranked top 3 among 16 participating institutions in Asia for various teaching and facilities-related elements, including programme organisation, class size, Internet access, laboratories, learning spaces, safety, and health centre. 
  • Received an average student satisfaction rate3 of 87.7% for learning elements – a rate higher than the global and Asian benchmarks.  In addition, 94% of HKCC and SPEED students “felt engaged with their studies”, signifying a strong correlation with the quality lectures and learning support provided by CPCE.
  • Received a high student satisfaction rate of 96.7% for counselling services – a rate higher than the global and Asian benchmarks. The results bear testimony to CPCE Student Affairs Office’s dedicated efforts in providing students with quality counselling and other support services.  
  • In respect to information technology, CPCE’s results outperformed the global and Asian benchmarks remarkably for Internet access, learning technology, virtual learning and IT support.

CPCE always places a strong emphasis on students’ whole-person development. The SB survey results prove that CPCE’s tireless efforts on the provision of quality teaching, campus facilities, IT infrastructure as well as student support services are paying off.
