# For these UG degrees, only graduands who have fulfilled the graduation requirements in Summer 2023 will be invited to this Winter Congregation 2023.


According to the announcement from the Registry of the University, a virtual format of the 211th Congregation will be held on November 10, 2023 to provide an option for graduands who have a genuine need for the early issuance of the graduation certificate (i.e. before the dates of the in-person congregations) for the purpose of employment or further studies.

Graduands may only choose to participate in the VIRTUAL format of the Congregation OR the IN-PERSON format; they cannot attend both. Candidates who are not able to attend either the IN-PERSON or the VIRTUAL format Congregation will be conferred the degrees in absentia at the IN-PERSON format Congregation.

Please note that you can only register for the in-person congregation, which is scheduled for December 6, 2023, through this system. If you plan to participate in the virtual congregation instead, please register at by October 23, 2023, at noon.


Graduands should dress in full academic attire, including a gown, hood, and cap, while Prize Winners should dress formally. The Congregation is a solemn event, and all participants are expected to dress formally. Graduates and Prize Winners who are not dressed in full academic attire or fail to meet the dress code will NOT be allowed to ascend to the stage.

Each Graduand may invite up to two guests to the Congregation. Please make sure to confirm your attendance and order guest tickets by 29 October 2023.  If you do not register by the deadline, it will be assumed that you are not attending the ceremony. Requests for late registration after the deadline will not be considered.  The graduand/prize winner/guest tickets will be mailed to you in due course.
