Graduates of Class of 2019 are invited to participate in GES 20191. 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.

You can obtain your own GES password at http://w2.cedars.hku.hk/ges. It will only take you 5-10 minutes to complete the questionnaire. 

All the data and information collected in GES will be treated in strictest confidence. Statistics will be released in aggregate form only with no personal or identifiable information.
