What is a private degree?

Private degrees refer to degrees that are offered by private schools or Private Education Institutions (PEIs).

All PEIs offering degree, diploma or full-time certification programmes must be registered with the Committee for Private Education (CPE).

Find out more about the courses offered by PEIs.

Choosing a PEI

Thinking of continuing your studies in a private school? If you are, it is important to do your research on the school and the course that you are interested in.

You should also think about:

  • The course fees
  • How you’re going to finance it
  • The opportunity cost while studying
  • Your career prospects after you graduate

Before signing up

Before making your decision to study in a private school, check if it is registered with CPE.

If you have any questions, you may approach CPE.
