VANCOUVER -- Thousands of students were honoured at an unorthodox graduation ceremony Wednesday.

Approximately 11,000 students who attended the University of British Columbia graduated in a virtual ceremony.

The online event started at 10 a.m. for the Vancouver campus. The ceremony for those who took classes at UBC's Okanagan campus started with a pre-show at 2:30 p.m.

Streamers were able to choose which campus, then watch the ceremony from home.

Other post-secondary schools and high schools across Canada are also taking their graduations online this year, due to physical distancing guidelines put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
