We know that graduation is a very special event, marking the end of many years of hard work and the beginning of a wonderful new chapter in people’s lives.

Due to Covid-19 distancing restrictions, Graduands will be conferred on the date the ceremony was scheduled but in absentia, and the testamur will be made available as soon as possible.

The Graduations Office is currently working on alternative options to commemorate your graduation. This will include the opportunity to book an on-campus professional photography session so that you can have photos in academic regalia with your loved ones. Please check your email for updated communications from the Graduations Office.
