Dear Graduating Class of 2020

I am pleased to announce that UKZN will be hosting a virtual Graduation Ceremony on Friday, 29 May 2020 at 13h30.

In these difficult times a virtual graduation ceremony allows us to honour your academic achievements as well as provide you and your loved ones with a graduation experience. To this end the University has partnered with the SABC to broadcast the ceremony live on SABC 3, Channel 193. Graduation will also be live streamed and a link will be communicated in due course.

We intend to make this virtual ceremony every bit as rich and meaningful as possible. The ceremony will take the following format: the Vice-Chancellor will deliver a speech and confer degrees on all students who have qualified. Deputy Vice-Chancellors will convey congratulatory messages.

The University will be posting information regarding the distribution of your graduation certificate and academic record.  An e-Certificate Solution has been procured, and once the necessary set-up and testing has been finalised, we will be in a position to distribute the items to eligible candidates.

If you have any questions related to the 2020 Graduation Ceremony please contact the Graduation Office via email april2020grad@ukzn.ac.za

We are currently compiling the relevant information, programmes and messages which will be uploaded to our website https://virtualgraduation.ukzn.ac.za/ details of which will go live on Friday 29 May 2020 at 12h00

We look forward to sharing these graduation experiences with you. I hope that this once-in-a-lifetime moment will be a twice-in-a-lifetime one.
