Updated: Jan 12



UKM, BANGI, 25 Nov - Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) is set to host its 51st Solemn and Heartwarming Graduation Ceremony at Dewan Canselor Tun Abdul Razak (DECTAR) from November 25th to November 30th, bidding farewell to students embarking on new chapters in their lives.

The ceremony, expected to honor approximately 7,255 graduates, marks a departure from tradition as it unfolds in phases. Each faculties will hold its ceremony on a different date, fostering a more personalized and exclusive celebration experience for every graduate.

To ensure the seamless execution of this momentous occasion, a meticulously planned rehearsal took place on Thursday, November 23, 2023, at 9.30am at Dewan Canselor Tun Abdul Razak (DECTAR). This rehearsal not only served as a comprehensive run-through of the entire ceremony but also emphasized key guidelines for the graduates' celebration.

The campus highlighted specific actions that were to be avoided during the festivities to guarantee a flawless ceremony. Prohibited actions include cutting in line, shaking hands with VIPs, taking selfies on the podium, or mishandling the diploma by turning it upside down or shaking it. These regulations are in place to uphold the ceremony's solemnity, ensuring that each graduate receives their diploma in a dignified and respectful environment.

Muhammad Hafizam Bin Azman, a graduate, said: "Regarding the ban on selfies on stage, I think it is a decision to respect the ceremony and the participants. Graduation is a solemn ceremony that represents the end and new beginning of our four years of study. At this important moment, focusing on the ceremony of the stage and sharing this time with the students is more precious than the selfie. Although we may miss out on some of the happy moments of selfies, I believe it is worth it because we are able to experience and cherish this special moment in a deeper way."

Since the 25th, the UKM campus has been filled with an atmosphere of joy and anticipation. Graduates from all institutions, dressed in their gowns and caps, proudly walked up to the ceremony stage to receive their degree certificates. A burst of cheers and applause came from the campus, witnessing the fruits of their hard work.

Wang Hao, a graduate from China, said, "I am an international student and coming to Malaysia to study with people from different cultural backgrounds has really opened my eyes.

YBhg. Prof. Dato’ Gs. Ts. Dr. Mohd Ekhwan Hj Toriman chancellor in his address at the ceremony said, "I am sure that every moment of your quest for knowledge throughout the entire journey of your studies has been well thought out, and that in order to achieve the ultimate goal you have I am sure that every moment of your pursuit of knowledge throughout your journey has been well thought out, and that you have made countless efforts to achieve your ultimate goal." I can relate to all of this because I myself experienced such a struggle 30 years ago. In this holy war for knowledge, your efforts and struggles remind me of my own struggles, and it is a kind of resonance that connects the pain and joy experienced by students of different generations in the pursuit of knowledge."
