What's the journey to graduation like, and what advice do new graduates have for students who're still on that road? Seven soon-to-be graduates speak about their UCT experience.
“Be committed and just know yourself.”
“The first degree you study might not be the one you end up finishing with. Try to find yourself and what you really, really love, and be flexible.”
“You have so much freedom, so use that freedom and have fun with it.”
“UCT has been a really cool place to be exposed to tons of different ideas.”
“I am here not just to gain experience, but to learn … Beyond UCT I see a brighter future.”
“It's been a very challenging three years, but it's also been three years that teaches you to actually push through and to try by all means to push for excellence.”
“It's my second graduation and I feel phenomenal. I feel great because my grandmother is going to be seeing me graduate for the first time. This might be the most important graduation of my life!”
