When will I graduate

Conferral of Award

Your conferral date is the date that you officially graduate from the university. This means that whether you celebrate by attending a graduation ceremony or not, you'll receive your documents shortly after you're conferred and be able to use these as proof of your qualification

A listing of all eligible graduands is submitted to the Chancellor for conferral (graduation). Conferral occurs each month from February to December each year.

The Chancellor, acting on behalf of the Council, approves the conferral of the awards on the approved list of graduands.

To be included in the listing of eligible graduands, you will first need to be identified as ready to graduate, have your enrolment assessed and approved as meeting all course requirements and have no outstanding grades or credit arrangements. Refer to the Conferral dates below for the timelines for each month.

Always refer to your Student Portal for information specific to your enrolment.

Celebrate at a ceremony

A graduation ceremony is a celebration of conferred graduates.

If you are conferred in March to August, you will be invited to attend a metropolitan (Sydney) ceremony hosted in September. You will also have the option to elect to defer your attendance to a regional ceremony hosted in late April - June of the following year.

If you are conferred in September to February, you will be invited to attend a regional ceremony hosted in late April-June. You will also have the  option to elect to defer your attendance to a metro (Sydney) ceremony hosted in September.
