Q9. What are my employment prospects after completion of the undergraduate degree course?
There is a broad spectrum of exciting career opportunities available with a UK degree/qualification, with many design openings in the private sector. Many Indian government agencies outsource their work to private design firms/studios, wherein students are frequently hired based on their portfolio and competence in handling design applications. International university graduates are also eligible to apply for faculty positions in private institutions and colleges in India and are often invited as qualified professionals to be guest speakers in Indian government colleges, where they can share their expertise and enhance the students' exposure to an ever-changing industry. The degrees are not currently recognised by the public sector/civil services (including the state and central government) in India. Raffles prepares the students with professional development skills and provides resources in support of their careers. The CPD Department (Centre of Professional Development) provides a seamless interface between industries and the students.
