New beginnings: This morning, the Faculty of Health Sciences kicked off UCT's December graduations.
Forget about the end of the world.
For the students who received their degrees from the Faculty of Health Sciences on 12 December - at the first of 12 graduation ceremonies UCT has lined up for the next week - the occasion in many ways marked a new beginning.
At the morning ceremony, the faculty presented degrees to students who had completed their studies in occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech-language pathology, audiology or medicine, qualifying them as professionals in their respective fields.
But it fell to another student - not from health sciences, though - embarking on new adventures to get things off on the right note. Music student Vuyo Sotashe, who performed at the opening ceremony and also graduates this week, will head for the Manhattan School of Music as a Fulbright Scholar next year.
UCT's grad week will end with two ceremonies on Tuesday, 18 December. The university will graduate over 5,500 students over the week.
