Dear colleagues, students and friends

It is hard to believe that 2014 is almost at its close, but that brings us closer to the most important part of any student’s career - graduation.

During this year’s June graduation, we capped an astounding 1 508 graduates of which 110 earned their doctorates. That is the highest number of doctorates we have ever had in a single ceremony.

In December last year, we watched approximately 5 590 students exit Jammie Hall having proudly earned their UCT qualifications. This year we look forward to capping close to 6 000 graduates

It is with this encouraging legacy in mind that we wish you a safe and peaceful holiday season and a successful 2015.
