UCT Graduation Dates 2020/2021

Looking for the University of Cape Town, UCT Graduation Dates, Graduation Livestream, Graduates List and other details of the ceremonies? This page will guide you through.


As you may know, the UCT Graduation is the highlight of the university calendar. Undergraduate and postgraduate students receive their degrees at ceremonies that take place at certain times during the year.

The university also confers honorary degrees on distinguished visitors who have made a valuable contribution to society. Other awards which are conferred during graduation include:

  • The Distinguished Teacher Award is the highest accolade given to teaching staff at all levels in the university and recognises excellent teaching. Through the award, UCT acknowledges the primary place of teaching and learning in the university’s work.
  • The UCT Book Award recognises the publication of outstanding books written by members of staff.
  • The Creative Works Award recognises major creative works, including art works, performances, productions, compositions and architectural designs produced by UCT staff.
  • The Social Responsiveness Award recognises UCT academics who demonstrate that social engagement has enhanced the teaching and learning process – one of the university’s priorities.
