A globally recognised rite of passage, graduation is the formal process of conferring a degree or diploma. Our ceremonies take place in the Great Hall.
When you are eligible to graduate, we will send you an invitation by email. This will arrive about four weeks prior to the ceremony date.
Your invitation will include all the details, including how many tickets you are entitled to, what will appear on your certificate, the ceremony location, time and date.
It's essential that you reply to the invitation. If you confirm your attendance, we'll also ask you to provide the following details:
Everything you need to know to prepare for your graduation ceremony will be provided with your invitation.
If you are unable to attend your graduation ceremony, you will graduate in absentia and and we will either post your documents to you or make them available for collection from the Student Centre.
If you don't respond to your invitation to graduate, we will send your documents to the address nominated in your MyUni account. Please ensure that your address is up to date at the time of graduation.
If you know in advance that you will not be able to attend your ceremony, you may be able to graduate at an earlier ceremony. Please notify us if you wish to have an early conferral by submitting an application form and emailing it to email@example.com. We need to receive your application at least a week before the conferral date, which is on the first Monday of each month (Tuesday if the Monday is a public holiday).
We post documents within three weeks of conferral. If you are collecting your documents from the Student Centre, they will be available three working days after conferral.
As a graduand, you will need to wear full academic dress appropriate for your degree or diploma, at your graduation ceremony. Full academic dress comprises a gown, bonnet/trencher cap, and hood or stole.
You can make, buy or hire academic dress, although the most popular choice is to hire it.
Wearing academic dress has its own rules.
One of the most important is that the tassel on your trencher should remain on the right side until you have shaken hands with the Chancellor. Once the photograph of you and the Chancellor is complete, you can switch the tassel to the left side to signify that you are a graduate.
Men should wear their trencher only when standing. Women wear theirs both standing and seated. If you wear a head-covering for religious or other specific reasons, you are not required to wear a trencher.
