COMMUNIQUÉ FROM THE OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR
2020 VIRTUAL SPRING GRADUATION
Dear Graduating Class of 2020
We are pleased to share with you details of the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Spring virtual graduation ceremony for the class of 2020 which takes place on Friday, 30th October @ 12h00.
Attached is a list of Graduands as per College.
As Acting Chancellor, the Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Nana Poku will officially confer degrees on all graduands who have succeeded in meeting all their academic requirements including those students who will receive their qualifications posthumously. The Deputy Vice-Chancellors and the Deans will convey their congratulatory messages to our graduands.
The decision to host a virtual graduation has been made in accordance with the national lockdown and social distancing regulations to safeguard all South Africans from contracting Covid-19 (Coronavirus).
Our graduands and members of the University Community will also be able to join the ceremony via the link: https://virtualgraduation.ukzn.ac.za. However, this link will only be active and accessible on Friday. Graduation programmes are also available on the webpage link provided above.
The University’s annual graduation ceremonies are at the heart of the academic calendar. We understand that the ceremony is their proudest moment – a joyous and grand occasion which our graduands share with peers, family and friends. Although we are precluded from hosting a traditional physical graduation ceremony, we are elated at the opportunity to present it in a virtual space for our graduands to celebrate in a whole new and unconventional way.
Dr Kathy Cleland
