June graduation ceremonies are typically smaller than the December versions (for which staff in Student Records are grateful!) but this year's June numbers are still up on the same period last year, if only marginally. Here's a quick rundown:

Provisional grand total for diploma, bachelor's, master's, honours and doctoral graduands across the six faculties: 1 336. That's up from the 1 293 in June 2010.

  • Faculty of Commerce: 670 graduands; including 49 honours and 71 master's qualifiers - compared to 686 last year.

  • Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment: 88 graduands. That's down from 106 in 2010, but still includes a rise in master's graduates, from 2010's 57 to 60 this year.

  • The Faculty of Health Sciences boasts the biggest jump, with 144 graduands, compared to 95 in 2010. That's thanks in part to a substantial jump in master's numbers, from 45 last year to 69 for 2011, at last count.

  • Things are pretty consistent in the Faculty of Humanities, which will cap 217 graduands, versus 224 in June 2010. There's a noticeable drop in doctoral graduands - down to seven from last year's 21 - but the numbers still include an impressive 111 master's graduands.

  • Faculty of Law: 102 graduands, compared to 2010's 77. As was the case last year, master's graduands (63) will take up most of the seats.

  • Faculty of Science, 115 graduands. No big changes from last year's 105, but master's graduands will jump by 10 from 53 last year to 63 this year. Also, the faculty is second only to health sciences in doctoral numbers - 20 at the time of going to press, compared to health sciences' 21.
