Overview of Student Barometer Autumn 2019 Results


CPCE participated in the Student Barometer (SB) Autumn for the fifth year in a row, and its results were on par with its counterparts in many aspects of student experience.

The SB Autumn exercise, conducted by the independent research company “i-graduate”, is a global surveyof studentexperience in the areas of learning, living, support and arrival. In 2019, CPCE received a high overall student satisfaction rate2 of 87.8%, comparable with the global benchmark of 90.7% and the Asian benchmark of 90.3%.

Among the local students of the participating institutions, the survey revealed that: 

  • In learning elements, CPCE attained a very high average student satisfaction rate3 of 90.8%, which is above the global benchmark of 88.2% and the Asian benchmark of 89.5%. Of the 25 individual learning elements, CPCE outperformed the global benchmark and the Asian benchmark in 20 and 19 of those elements respectively, and it attained a satisfaction rate of 90% or higher in 17 elements.
  • With respect to “Careers advice” from academic staff, CPCE received a student satisfaction rate of 85.2%, which is significantly higher than the global benchmark of 78.6% and on par with the Asian benchmark of 86.7%. Besides, the satisfaction rate for employability has steadily increased over the years, from 79% in 2015 to 85.1% in 2019.

The bar graph below shows some of the elements that CPCE performed well above the global and Asian benchmarks for local students in the SB Autumn 2019:
