What is a virtual graduation ceremony?
Why does the University not wait for COVID-19 to subside for normal graduation ceremonies to be arranged?
The University has decided to proceed with the graduation ceremonies virtually to allow qualifying candidates to submit their qualification certificates to their prospective or current employers and to apply for studies at other institutions both in South Africa and abroad. The University is also required to report to the Department of Higher Education and Training on the number of graduates it has produced in the 2020/2021 reporting cycle.
