Once you have completed your course, your degree will be conferred and you will become an official graduate of the University.
In person graduation ceremonies will commence from April 2021 with COVID safety practices in place. The ceremonies will be held at the Great Hall and available to watch on a video live stream. In the event of a COVID outbreak where public health orders or Government restrictions prevent the ceremonies from going ahead, the cancelled ceremonies will not be rescheduled.
Find out everything you need to know before the ceremony, including how to RSVP to your invitation, on our ‘Prepare for graduation page’. For information on how graduation ceremonies will be run during this time, including how COVID safe practices will be implemented, visit our ‘On the day’ page. If you are unable to make it to your graduation, you will graduate in absentia and your degree will be conferred on the date outlined in your graduation invite.
Unfortunately we will be not be able to host any replacement ceremonies on campus for students who graduated in 2020. While we are aware that there are changing health guidelines regarding gatherings in New South Wales, replacing all events that have been cancelled due to COVID-19 will not be possible.
In early September we live-streamed a special online event from the Great Hall to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our students who completed their studies in Semester 2 2019, and Semester 1 2020. If you missed the event, you can watch it here.
