The University runs approximately 26 graduation ceremonies annually and it is the responsibility of EGO to co-ordinate the ceremonies, keep records of each ceremony procedures and print the degree/diploma certificates.

JUNE 2020 

In the revised 2020 almanac the period 10 June - 1 July 2020 was identified as an examination period for those Faculties requiring some form of assessment to take place.


As the higher education sector is following the directive of the lockdown levels stipulated by the National Command Council, the University does not anticipate face-to face, in person, sit-down examinations during this period. In all likelihood assessments will take the form of a take-home examination and/or an open book and/or a project and/or a Multiple Choice Questionnaire or any other form of remote assessment. Each faculty will determine the modes and dates of assessments for the remainder of the academic year and these will be communicated to students in due course.


The Examinations and Graduation Office (EGO) provides a service to students regarding:

  • graduations
  • examinations

All of the University's examination sessions are scheduled, organised and run by EGO. The two major sessions take place in June and November respectively. In addition there are supplementary and deferred examinations in January and Health Sciences examinations which run in May and October respectively.

In addition to the University's examinations, EGO assists other South African Universities and various foreign institutions in providing an examination service for locally-based candidates.
