IOU 8th Convocation Ceremony

Convocation is the culmination of years of your dedication, sincerity, hard work, passion, and commitment. At the same time, we believe this is not the pinnacle of your success, rather a milestone of your journey of seeking knowledge.

In the planning and organizing of IOU’s 8th Convocation ceremony, your health and safety have been primary concerns for us.

We are extremely excited about the in-person celebration in The Gambia at the IOU headquarters, at the same time we are equally happy to organize our online ceremony for all of our graduates across the globe who will join the virtual celebration in sha Allah. In this post Covid-19 era, we are proud to honor you in a grand convocation ceremony, both in-person and online!

The dates for the 8th Convocation are as follows:

3rd March 2022 in The Gambia and 5th March 2022 online,
organized by the Registrar’s Office.
