Conferral date

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 graduation ceremony is a celebration that you and your guests are invited to attend at a later date, to celebrate this incredible achievement. 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.

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