Overseas ceremonies

The University of Sydney holds overseas graduation ceremonies for students who have completed programs in Australia. These ceremonies enable the families and friends of the graduates to share in their success and enjoy the spectacle of a degree ceremony.

The ceremonies reflect the University's commitment to developing high level international links, and are associated with a series of major events including academic visits, symposia, alumni and VIP events, together with government and press relations.


University of Sydney graduation ceremonies have been held in Hong Kong since 1991. The University held a presentation ceremony in Beijing in 2005 and since then the University's graduation ceremonies in China have become an annual event, shared between Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
