Upon successful completion of your study at the University, you will be conferred with the appropriate academic award at a relevant session of the University Congregation, which is usually held in October/November each year.

Academic award parchments will be issued twice a year. For students with graduation status confirmed on or before 15 March, they will be regarded as graduates of Round 1 exercise and they will receive the academic award parchments in late March/early April with the award parchment dated 15 March of the year concerned. For students with graduation status confirmed after 15 March and before 1 October, they will be regarded as graduates of Round 2 exercise and they will receive their parchments in late October/early November with the award parchment dated 30 September of the year concerned.

You may visit our homepage for more updated information on the collection arrangement in early March or early October with reference to your graduation timeline.

Please note that, by legitimacy, the award parchments would only be available upon the start of the official collection period in respective round. Any request for early collection of award parchment would not be entertained.

You are strongly advised to ensure the safe-keeping of your parchment. The University will under no circumstances issue any duplicate or replacement.

The University is not responsible for the safe custody of any uncollected parchments after the designated collection period and may destroy them without any further notice at the end of the following year. No replica nor replacement of your award parchment will be issued.

The University reserves the right to withhold the issuance (or retract) of an award parchment or any certification of study in case a student has unsettled matters with the University, or is subject to disciplinary action.
