IOU 9th 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 9th Convocation ceremony, your success as well as 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 even happier to organize our online ceremony for all of our graduates across the globe who will join the virtual celebration in sha Allah. We are proud to honor you in a grand convocation ceremony, both in-person and online!

The date of the 9th Convocation is as follows:
