Dear Graduates,

Congratulations on completing your degree. You are cordially invited to attend a Graduation Ceremony on Thursday the 23rd of February 2016 at which you will be awarded your certificate. The event will be held at The Venue, Melrose Arch, 17 High St, Johannesburg, 2076.


All graduating students will be required to wear graduation gowns. These may be hired through GDC at a fee of R260-00 and students wishing to make use of this facility must indicate so in the attached form and return it to GDC with payment no later than 10 February 2016. Gowns will be handed out on graduation day at the auditorium between 12:00pm and 1:30pm and must be returned after the ceremony.


Appropriate hoods for both the BA and the BA Honours students will be provided by GDC and may be purchased from the college. A full Purchase price will be charged for any unreturned gowns or hoods.


Students may bring two guests to the ceremony free of charge (entrance tickets will be sent via email). Seating for additional guests will be charged for at R230-00 and additional tickets will be issued via email once receipt of payment is sent through to reception. Payments will only be received at the college or via EFT, not at the event. No entrance will be permitted without a ticket. Please note that seating for additional guests will be reserved on a first come first serve basis. Please fill in the adjacent online form.


Students are advised to bring sufficient funds to the Graduation as payments for the photographs must be made directly to the photographer on the evening. Should you wish to order photographs from the photographer, they will then post them directly to you, alleviating the hassle of having to pick them up from the college. Please visit for more details.
