The tertiary school enrollment in Singapore is the number of students in tertiary level education as percent of all people who have finished secondary school in the last five years.
Definition: Gross enrollment ratio is the ratio of total enrollment, regardless of age, to the population of the age group that officially corresponds to the level of education shown.
