Graduation July 2021

We understand the disappointment that our students and their families feel about the impact that the global pandemic has had on the normal operations for graduation ceremonies. Please know that the decision to host virtual graduation events was not taken lightly. We congratulate the July 2021 graduands on their academic success during exceptionally challenging times.

The July 2021 graduands have graduated during the virtual celebratory events as per the published schedule available on the graduation page on the UCT Students website, where you will find full information about graduation.

You can also follow the celebrations on UCT’s Twitter page by using the #UCTGrad2021 hashtag.
