Survey results from Student Barometer Autumn 2018


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

The SB Autumn exercise, conducted by the independent research company “i-graduate”, is a global survey1 of students’ experience in areas of learning, living, support and arrival.  In 2018, CPCE received a high overall student satisfaction rate2 of 89.8%, which is in line with the global benchmark and above the Asian benchmark.  The survey among the local students of the participating institutions revealed that: 

  • In terms of learning elements, CPCE received an average student satisfaction rate3 of 89.5%, which is above the global and Asian benchmarks. CPCE also ranked top 3 among the 19 participating Asian institutions for good teachers, quality lectures, learning support, programme organisation and class size.
  • With respect to career advice from academic staff, CPCE received a student satisfaction rate of 85.5%, which is significantly higher than the global benchmark. Additionally, there is an upward trend of satisfaction rate for employability over the years, i.e. from 79% in 2015 to 83.2% in 2018.
