Graduation is an exciting time of the year when all the hard work graduates have put in culminates in a celebration with friends and family.

However, still finding ourselves battling the pandemic brought many physical events to a stand-still. For these reasons the December 2021 graduation ceremonies were hosted as virtual events on 13 and 14 December and an additional informal graduation ‘walk of celebration’ was held outside Sarah Baartman Hall.

Each faculty was invited to a different time-slot in which graduates had an opportunity to invite up to three of their guests to watch them walk across a platform outside the Sarah Baartman Hall and have their name called out while the Vice-Chancellor and their loved ones congratulated and celebrated with them.

The UCT community sends congratulations and well wishes to all students who will graduated in December 2021.
