35 000 Unisa Students Expected To Graduate


Unisa offers study opportunities to over 370 000 students from across South Africa, Africa and other parts of the world. In recent years, graduation ceremonies were disrupted at the university, but have recently resumed. 



The university resumed with its Autumn graduation on 22 March 2023 in Pretoria. Approximately 35 000 students are expected to be conferred during this ceremony as the university celebrates its 150th Anniversary.

In a statement, Unisa Principal and Vice Chancellor, Professor Puleng LenkaBula said:

Graduations are the hallmark and pinnacle of trajectories that students follow in the life-long pursuit of wisdom and knowledge in the various degrees they undertake at Unisa.

This is an important milestone for universities as they showcase students’ successes and completion of the educational and research processes.

LenkaBula kick started the graduations and presided over the first of the graduation series, held at its Muckleneuck Campus in Pretoria on 22 March 2023.

Graduation ceremonies will run from 22 March to 8 June 2023, and 87 ceremonies are expected to be held at seven regions: Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, East London, Mbombela, Polokwane and Bloemfontein.

According to Unisa, the Chancellor of the University of South Africa, His Excellency Former President Thabo Mbeki is scheduled to officiate at the graduation ceremonies in the following manner:

  1. Pretoria - 29 March 2023
  2. Mbombela - 15 April 2023
  3. Durban - 08 June 2023

The institution directly communicates with every graduate to inform them of their individual graduation dates and times.

Although the university’s graduation ceremonies have been postponed a few times due to a number of reasons such as union protests at the university premises, and this time around, the university has been able to resume with its graduation ceremony.
