|What should I do if I cannot collect the admission tickets in person within the collection period? Will the Faculty mail the tickets?|
All admission tickets MUST be collected during a stipulated period, in person or by authorising a third person. NO mailing service will be provided. Registered graduands will be notified the final number of ticket(s) allocated to them, together with the details of admission ticket collection arrangement via email after the registration period ended.
The Graduation Ceremony may not be suitable for babies or young children as it is a formal occasion with long ceremonial proceedings. If you decide to bring your children, you will also need to register their guest tickets.
