Prior to Graduation

Have I qualified to graduate?

Please note that you must fulfil all requirements for your certificate, diploma or degree, in order to graduate.

The examination results of possible graduands will be officially released on Friday, 6 March 2020. You can obtain your results by:

Are my details correct?

Ensure that your name and surname are correct on the Student Portal, as replacement certificates will be at the student’s own cost.

Do I have outstanding fees?

Candidates who have outstanding fees will receive a sheath at the ceremony, which will not contain the official graduation documents, but will, instead, contain an account for the outstanding amount and a letter requesting payment thereof.

To make it possible for the University to issue graduation documents at the ceremony, candidates must for the purposes of the March/April 2020 ceremonies settle the outstanding amount before 12:00 on Friday, 20 March 2020
