Welcome to your Virtual Graduation

Your past academic year leading up to this celebration of your achievements has been unprecedented in its challenges, as you all know only too well.

Foremost in everyone’s lives amid your academic priorities has been the COVID-19 pandemic that swept across the globe and is ominously still here with us today – as it will be for the significant future. It is in the interests of safety – yours, ours, and our respective loved ones, and in observing the stipulated health protocols, that our graduations are again being held in the virtual space.

'Start Strong ...

‘I am so grateful for the support from friends and family and also UKZN staff members whose help went beyond academics - it was something that always pulled me through. My advice for students is to start strong and persevere. We always think we can catch up later - rather get into the habit of starting early and staying on track. It helps to reduce stress and will serve you well for your postgraduate studies where you need to have established habits for learning or you’ll struggle.’

Dear Graduands

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2021 and welcome to all of you to this virtual Graduation Ceremony. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are constrained in meeting face to face, but know that recording and honouring your success virtually has the same significance and meaning as it would have, had we been able to gather in person.
