Graduates of Class of 2018 are now invited to participate in GES 2018. Your response is critical and valuable to the University for reviewing HKU students’ educational outcome. The GES information will serve as useful reference for different parties including your Faculty / Department, current and prospective students, employers and the Government, so your support would be much appreciated.
