Due to the ongoing global pandemic, each faculty at the University of Cape Town (UCT) held a graduation ‘walk of celebration’ for the March 2022 graduands outside of the Sarah Baartman Hall. The Faculty of Science celebrated graduands on Thursday, 31 March 2022.
During the graduation ‘walk of celebration’ 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 graduated in March 2022.
