Once you have completed your course, your degree will be conferred and you will become an official graduate of the University.
In light of the relaxing NSW public health orders, and after extensive consultation with students, the University has listened to your feedback about graduation ceremonies. As a result, we are delighted to confirm we plan to recommence on campus ceremonies in December for all students who were scheduled to graduate in Semester 2 2021, subject to public health orders.
We will be in touch again shortly via email with more detailed information about your graduation ceremony, including when it will be held and how you can RSVP to the event. We are strongly recommending all participants and guests are vaccinated prior to the event.
If you are unable to attend a graduation ceremony in person, you will be able to watch a live stream of your ceremony. We are also exploring other ways we might celebrate your achievements, including hosting a graduation celebration event in 2022.
Please be assured that the status of your graduation is unaffected. You will graduate in absentia, which means your degree will still be conferred on the proposed date as listed on the conferral schedule page and you will officially become a graduate of the University of Sydney.
You will receive a digital version of your documents 2 business days after conferral. Hard copies will be posted within 4-6 weeks, however there may be delays with limited staff on campus. Please ensure your preferred address details are up-to-date by completing the preferred mailing address form by 6 October.
