Liftoff 2019 will be held over 13 May (Day 1) and 14 May (Day 2), whole day.

All Orbital students need to be present at Liftoff unless their absence has been specifically permitted in writing in email by a facilitator of the course.  Prospective students, please ensure that you have extended your living arrangements and made appropriate travel arrangements if you are planning to leave Singapore shortly after exams.  If leaving for an international flight after the second date, please ensure you have appropriate travel time. (+1 hr to return to your living accommodations to get your baggage, +1 hr to get to the airport; 2 hrs for check-in; so probably around 10pm or later on Day 2 is safe).
