Due to the nationwide lockdown in South Africa, the University of Venda has suspended all events and meetings for the entire duration of the lockdown as guided by the government regulations aimed at managing the spread of the coronavirus. 

At its virtual meeting of 24 April 2020, the University Senior Management Committee took a decision to postpone the 2020 Autumn Graduation ceremony which was scheduled to take place from 12 to 15 May 2020, to a date yet to be confirmed. It was also decided that the Graduation ceremony will be virtual. 

The University Senior Management Committee is yet to decide on the practicable mechanism of conferring the qualifications to qualifying candidates. The outcome of the Senior Management Committee meeting, yet to be held, will be communicated with all relevant stakeholders. 

Kind regards, 

Dr Takalani Dzaga-APR
