Graduation

Graduation schedule

April and May ceremonies are going ahead

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.
 

Unable to attend your graduation ceremony?

If you are unable to attend the ceremony in person, you will be able to watch a live stream of your ceremony. The link for your ceremony will be available 15 minutes before your ceremony commences.

Search under your discipline below for the date and time of your ceremony. You can find these details of your graduation ceremony in the graduation invitation email we sent you. Be aware, all ceremonies times are listed in Sydney local time.

If you requested to graduate in absentia early, and did not receive a graduation invitation with your ceremony date and time, you can watch any live stream under your discipline.

If you're unable to watch live, a recording of your ceremony will become available through the same link 3-5 business days after your ceremony. This will be will be available for you to access and share with others for 6 weeks before being removed
