Dates of ceremonies

Mafikeng Campus

Dear graduate
 
As a result of the ongoing unrest in the greater Mahikeng, management of the North-West University has taken a decision to postpone the graduation ceremonies scheduled for this week Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, to 2, 3 and 4 May. This decision was taken after consultation with the South African Police Service, and in the best interest of our graduates and their families. We want to ensure that this momentous occasion can be celebrated properly, thus the decision.
 
Please see the revised dates below in red, or contact graduation enquiries at 018 299 2623 or nwu-grad@nwu.ac.za

 
Regards
The NWU management
