Faculty Graduation Ceremony 2016
On December 6, 2016, the Faculty Congregation Ceremony was held in the Grand Hall of the University. It was the second time to hold three separate sessions for our different levels of graduates during a single day. The graduates and their families had a most enjoyable time, and everyone seemed to be taking full advantage of the photo opportunities provide by being on home territory and on the Centennial Campus for all three events again this year.
We are very grateful to Professor Rosie T T Young, GBS, JP, Chairperson of the HKU Foundation and Emeritus Professor; and Dr Anissa Chan Wong Lai Kuen, BBS, MH, JP, Principal of St. Paul’s Co-educational College and Supervisor of St. Paul’s Co-educational College Primary School, who were our Guests of Honour and offered inspiring words to the new graduates and guests, and to our President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Mathieson who capped the graduands in two of the ceremonies.
Congregation marks a new stage in life for around 1,000 graduates in Education. This year, Doctoral Degrees were conferred on 33 graduates, Master’s Degrees on 554, and Bachelor’s Degrees on 205. In addition, 12 graduates were awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Educational Studies and 328 received the Postgraduate Diploma in Education. Prizes for academic excellence were also awarded to staff and students in various categories.
