With COVID-19 restrictions rendering it impossible to host in-person graduation ceremonies, UCT honours 667 graduates from the Faculty of Science in a virtual ceremony on Monday, 19 July 2021, with musical performances and social media elements created to add some fun and excitement. We congratulate the July 2021 graduates on their academic success during an exceptionally challenging year.
