Starting Pay for Fresh University Graduate

So what is the starting pay for university graduates that are fresh out of university?

In 2017, the median salary for fresh graduates was $3,400. This is as compared to $3,300 in year 2016.

The top gross salary went (not surprisingly) to law degree holders from NUS and SMU, medicine from NUS, and those who did a double degree in business and computing from NTU. These earned  $5,000 per month.

Computer Science and dental surgery ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively at  $4,285 and $4,050.

The survey results are quite surprising I must admit.  But it shows that computing is probably in great demand for a variety of sectors in Singapore's economy.  With the rise of fields such as data analytics, machine intelligence and cybersecurity, these graduates are probably well - placed to take advantage of the digital economy.

The usual suspects of law, medicine and dentistry naturally command a high pay.
