The 2016 academic year, albeit a difficult and turbulent one, produced the highest graduation numbers for the University to date, with 6786 students from seven faculties capped over 17 ceremonies at the Port Elizabeth and George campuses.

Of the graduates, a record 95 received their doctoral degrees, with three honorary doctorates conferred on prominent national and international game changers - former Public Service and Administration minister Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, globally acclaimed educational entrepreneur Fred Swaniker and philanthropist Strive Masiyiwa.
