Unisa To Host Virtual Graduation Ceremony For 2021


It seems that Unisa students who were looking forward to a face to face graduation may be in for disappointment, as the university recently announced that it will be making some changes. 


The university announced that it will not be holding an in-person graduation ceremony for the 2021 academy, with the exception of post-graduate students.

The higher learning institution has said it will host a 2021 Virtual Graduation Ceremony for students who would have graduated during the Autumn graduation season. 

Due to the Covid-19 regulations, Unisa is unable to arrange in-person graduation ceremonies for all Unisa students. We have, however, started in-person graduation ceremonies for master’s and doctoral students, and will be hosting our Virtual Graduation Ceremony soon for all students who graduated during the Autumn graduation season.

The university has also extended its congratulations to all the students who will be graduating.

Applications for the 2022 admission to undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications for the 2022 academic year are closed. 

However, applications for 2022 registrations of UNISA’s Short Learning Programmes (SLPs) are still currently open until 28 February 2022.

With over 400 000 students in nine faculties, UNISA is the largest university in South Africa and on the African continent, and one of the world's mega-universities. The university has offices across South Africa and students from 130 countries.
