About nine in 10 graduates from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU) were able to find employment within six months of finishing their final examinations.

This is according to the results of a joint graduate employment survey conducted by the three universities. A total of 10,534 full-time, fresh graduates took part in the survey.

As of Nov 1 last year, 89.3 per cent of their graduates found jobs, with 83.4 per cent of them having full-time permanent jobs.

The average gross monthly salary among fresh graduates in full-time jobs was $3,229, while the median gross monthly salary was $3,050. These figures are comparable to what fresh graduates received in 2012.
