If your private degree is in the list of recognised University, there shouldn't be a problem. The only issue is that you may be offered the same starting grade as the diploma holders.

Private deg are usually offered 2 ranks below a local uni grad. If you have 2-3 years of relevant exp, sometimes they might offer you 1 rank below instead.

Im an SIM-UOL grad working in MSF, started as MX13 like most local uni grad and same payscale. Definitely wont be high flyer but still better than private, volatile economy now.

Might be slightly difficult to get in, but if u never apply, u'll never know. As they say, you wont win the lottery without buying a ticket.

MSF is different, they are likely the most unpopular ministry to work at due to nature of work and limited prospects.

Actually its not that bad lah, as long as no major screw up reaching AD level at 40 yo is still possible. It's a very stable job, definitely must have the heart for it and not for those who want promotions and money.

You will retire at 1 rank below local uni grads. The average NUS grad might retire at DD, but you'll retire at AD. Pay grade also slightly lower. As a private uni grad, you'll be rewarded better in the corporate world, don't join the civil service unless you're desperate.

yeah a lot of people will say the corporate world will be better for us DL grads. but considering the job fulfilment, stability and my personal stand that money and position is not everything, i believe i have made the right choice. i go to work happy and go home knowing i have helped someone.

Not true. I have an UniSIM degree. joined one of the SBs on the same grade as local grads and managed to switch over to two other SBs on a higher grade each time.
