In the most recent survey of GES graduates in late 2016, many of them are now working in the private and public sectors, including positions as public servants, management trainees, training assistants, marketing assistants, project executives and safety officers. Some graduates are pursuing Master degree studies in environmental management and urban planning.

Congratulations to the graduates of 2016 of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Liberal Studies Education for their success in career development and further studies.

Many of them are employed in primary schools, secondary schools or other institutions in the education field.
