Changes to Graduation from 2010
Important Changes to Graduation
From 2010 Graduation ceremonies will no longer be held immediately after the end of Semester ie. July/December due to the restructure of the University's teaching periods. From 2011 Graduation ceremonies will be held in March and September. Students who complete their course at the end of Semester 1 or Winter term will graduate in September and student who complete their course at the end of Semester 2 will graduate in March/April 2012.
For students who have been identified to graduate in March and whose results are released in December, the Student Progress and Graduation Office will issue a letter of course completion, a complimentary academic transcript and invitation to attend a graduation ceremony to students in mid January. Students whose semester results are not finalised by the official release of results date will receive their letter of course completion and academic transcript as soon as the Student Progress and Graduation Office confirms the course requirements have been met.
Testamurs can only be provided to students at the Graduation ceremonies for those students that choose to attend, or after the ceremonies for those students that choose to graduate in absentia. A letter of course completion and an academic transcript showing a student has completed the requirements of their course is normally sufficient evidence for applying for employment, permanent residency etc.
Questions, concerns or comments regarding these changes can be emailed to the Student Progress and Graduation Office.
