UWC hosts virtual graduation ceremony

Published Mar 31, 2020


JOHANNESBURG - Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. These are indeed extraordinary times we are living in and we have had to adapt the way in which we do things.

With South Africa on lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the University of the Western Cape has decided to go ahead with its first graduation season for 2020. “How?“ you may ask - by hosting a virtual graduation ceremony..

UWC Registrar, Dr Nita Lawton-Misra stressed the importance of going ahead with the graduation ceremony.

She said “Having patiently waited for their graduation to take place in March/April as initially planned makes it more difficult to accept the possibility of a further postponement.”

With graduate employability being one of the three pillars of the institution's 60th birthday celebrations UWC wanted to ensure that they don’t hold their graduates back from entering the job market.
