Can you help me find a job when I finish my course?

Even better, we help you get a job before you finish! The final term includes an Industry Experience component.

This means that you're already experiencing the industry while you're studying. Although these positions are mostly unpaid, the experience you get is invaluable. By the time you graduate, you'll have started to build up some industry contacts and you'll have a graduate portfolio that will be your passport to a job.

Also while you're studying, keep an eye out on campus for job ads. Employers regularly contact us to advertise for positions,so there's always some work on offer. We also have a Continuous Professional Development Centre (CPD) which has full-time staffs to help you keep an eye on available positions.

This CPD portal is accessible for all students and includes positions around the whole of Asia-Pacific whereby we have our campuses.


What if I don't have the right level of English to enter a course?

We do offer English classes to students who are incompetent in English. First, our ELP (English Language Program) lecturer will have an interview and test with you, after which you will be given your level. Students will be required to pass the various levels in ELP, namely, Elementary, Low-intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-intermediate, Advanced and Upper Advanced.


I don't have the right English level to start my course. How long do I have to study English?

To calculate how long you have to study English, you need to know your current English level. For example, if you currently have a level of IELTS 5.5, then you should most probably do approximately 10-12 weeks of English to get from IELTS 5.5 to IELTS 6.0 (entry requirement for our programs). However these are just approximate, as it depends on each individual. Of the 6 levels of English classes offered by Raffles, each level will take 1 term to complete and pass.


How can I work out my English level if I haven't done an IELTS test?

If you've done another type of English test, have studied English or have completed some secondary or tertiary study in an English-speaking country, then we may be able to assess your English. Or you can do our own English test here in our campus.


What type of job can I get after I finish my course?

This depends on the course you do and, to a large extent, your drive and determination as well as talent. Design is a wide-ranging industry and there are many types of jobs available. Initially most graduates are looking at entry-level positions where they can learn on the job and keep exploring their areas of interest. Our commerce graduates would likewise be looking for entry level positions in their chosen field.


Are there lots of jobs in the design industry?

The design industry is booming in all its various specializations. Check out the info about each of the program majors to find out more about the career opportunities that exist.
