Registration and robing

Please report at the MPH at 9.50am (Commencement Ceremony 1) or 2.20pm (Commencement Ceremony 2) for registration and robing.
All graduands must be seated in the Auditorium by 10.45am (Commencement Ceremony 1) or 3.15pm (Commencement Ceremony 2). Doors will be closed once the ceremony has started.

During the ceremony

Commencement is a formal academic ceremony and a dignified occasion. Please be reminded of the following:

  1. Academic regalia (robe, hood and mortarboard) should be worn throughout the ceremony. Academic regalia must not be altered in any way.

  2. Mobile devices should be on silent mode.

  3. Ushers will check your graduand attendance card and show you to your seat. You are to remain seated and follow the directions of the ushers throughout the ceremony.

  4. The attendance card is required when you are presented on stage. Please have your attendance card with you at all times, especially when you are queuing to be presented on stage.

  5. When you are presented on stage to receive your degree, contact with the Presiding Officer should be limited to a handshake. To ensure that the ceremony runs smoothly and in a timely manner, there should be no taking of 'selfies' or 'wefies' on stage. We should be considerate and ensure that these are taken only after the ceremony.

This is a memorable moment when you and your fellow graduands celebrate your academic achievements, so do remember to applaud for one another!

End of Ceremony

All graduands and guests are invited to a reception at the Campus Centre after the ceremony.
