Congratulations to all graduates!
Firstly, let me commend you all on finishing your studies, particularly at such a difficult time. It is a tremendous effort by all of you.
Unfortunately, the continuing pandemic means we have some limitations on some of our operations and staging our normal large Graduation Ceremony is just not possible at the moment. It is highly unlikely we would be able to hold the large ceremony and invite family to attend in the first half of 2022.
In order to cater for both graduates who would like to attend a ceremony sooner and those who are prepared to wait for the large ceremony, it is proposed we hold a smaller restricted capacity graduation in the first week of March 2022 AND the larger full graduation ceremony in the second half of the year.
So, if you wish to attend a smaller graduation ceremony (60 graduates), we are pleased to invite you back to campus for your graduation ceremony. Due to the limitation of space, each graduate may only bring 2 guests to attend the ceremony. All graduates and guests will also need to be fully vaccinated* in order to attend. If you would like to attend the earlier March ceremony, you need to reserve your place using this online form EventRSVP no later than 30 January 2022.
If you wish to wait for the larger full ceremony in the second half of the year, further information will be sent when available. Please note that you can choose only one option of ceremony.

|* Definition of fully vaccinated:|
|(1)||Individuals who have taken the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccines, which require 2 doses, and have passed 14 days from the date of their second vaccination.|
|(2)||Individuals who have taken the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires 1 dose, and have passed 28 days from the date of their vaccination.|
