Once you have completed your course, your degree will be conferred and you will become an official graduate of the University.
When you've met all the eligibility requirements, you'll be allocated to graduate in your faculty or school’s next available ceremony.
If you complete your degree in Semester 1, you'll usually graduate at a ceremony in October (except for Sydney Pharmacy School and Sydney Dental School students, who will graduate the following year).
If you complete your degree in Semester 2, you'll usually graduate at a ceremony in May of the following year (except Doctor of Medicine students, who will graduate in December).
We are exploring ways we might celebrate the achievements of students who were unable to attend graduation ceremonies in 2020. We will be in touch shortly with more information about this.
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, see On the day. 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.
