Dear Graduates of 2020 and 2021,

Greetings from Wawasan Open University (WOU)!

As you may know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, the University could only host an e-Convocation event in Years 2020 and 2021, without any physical ceremony.  Subsequently, in March 2022, we kept our promise to the Graduates of 2020 by organising a photography session to allow them to take photographs in their academic dress at the WOU Main Campus. 

We understand that taking part in such a ceremony is momentous for every graduate, but we were unable to organise an on-site convocation in the last two years because of the pandemic.  However, since our country has entered an endemic phase on 1 April 2022, the University would like to provide the opportunity to Graduates of 2020 and 2021 to participate in a simple but memorable commemoration ceremony.

During this ceremony, you will wear your academic dress and walk across the stage. This is an occasion for you to be congratulated by the University leadership, and celebrate your achievement with family, friends and the University community.  

The details of the ceremony are as follows:


Wawasan Open University (WOU) Main Campus

54, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah

10050 Penang


27- 28 August 2022 (Saturday & Sunday)


The exact date and time of your session will be announced on 15 July 2022 (Friday).  Therefore, you are advised to make your transportation and accommodation arrangements only after we have officially announced details of your respective sessions.
