Welcome to Graduation

There’s a poignancy to every graduation ceremony but at UWC, this is marked by the special gift we hand out to each student as they are capped.

 

 Trendsetting Traditions

​​In 2013, UWC set a trend when we presented our graduates with a gift box after they were capped. More than a symbolic gesture to honour their perseverance, the box is significant in that it contains items that will maintain students’ connection to the university for life.

Along with a card congratulating them on their significant achievement, the graduation gift box contains a special UWC badge, an alumni membership form, our ‘Three Sixt-e’ quarterly newsletter and our annual 360 Perspectives Magazine.

Now a firm UWC tradition, we hope the graduation gift box will inspire them to tackle life with the same perseverance and tenacity with which they approached their studies.

Whether graduates return to further their education or whether they move on to use their knowledge in their specific fields, we wish them everything of the best!​


Each year approximately 4 000 graduates receive these special gifts, that most treasure a memento of an important part of their lives.​​
