Congregation is one of the most important events in the University’s calendar and an official occasion prescribed by the HKU Ordinance to confer the respective degrees on students who are eligible for graduation.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation and in accordance with recommendations on social distancing and group gatherings, the University has decided to hold Congregation on a smaller scale this year, i.e., only the graduands will be invited to attend their respective Faculty sessions.
The 205th Congregation (Faculty of Law session) will be held on December 6, 2021 (Monday) at 2:30 pm (HKT) at HKU Grand Hall. All Congregation sessions will be broadcast live online so that family and friends can watch the ceremony proceedings.
*While the University aims to hold the Congregation as scheduled should the situation allow, we may need to reconsider the arrangements in light of the latest developments of COVID-19 in Hong Kong and make adjustment as deemed necessary. We shall keep you posted of any update.
