Important Information Regarding July 2020 Graduation
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, this year’s finalists will graduate on time and receive their degree certificates through the post. However, the University has postponed the summer graduation ceremonies. The University will reschedule a very special set of ceremonies for our class of 2020. We will confirm the details of these as soon as we are able.
We are working hard to schedule alternative celebrations when possible, and we thank everyone for their understanding.
Please be assured that we will be inviting you to a special graduation ceremony as soon as it is safe to host such an event on campus again. We know how important it is for you to share this celebration with your family and friends and want to give you every opportunity to enjoy the experience you and they deserve. However, while we are unable to welcome you onto campus this summer, the University nonetheless would like to take the opportunity to celebrate your achievements as our graduating Class of 2020.
To that end, please save the date 24 July 2020 for a day of celebration across social media. We will bring our Class of 2020 together virtually; with each other, with your schools and teachers, and with your new global community of alumni – for a graduation without borders.
July 2020 Graduation - Emails to Students
The following email has been shared with our graduating Class of 2020 in preparation for graduation.
Email sent 30 June 2020
All graduates are required to complete and submit the Tracer Study questionnaires which can be accessed directly at the MOE website. The online exercise is compulsory.
The University is aware that for some students it is particularly important that they receive their award certificate as soon as possible after they have successfully completed their course.
The usual graduation arrangements may mean that a student has to wait for several months until they can receive their certificate at the graduation ceremony. An inter-ceremony graduation procedure has therefore been set up for students who must have their award certificate more quickly.
Students who wish to follow the inter-ceremony procedure may apply to have their awards conferred in absentia by the University in March or October. If you choose to follow the inter-ceremony route and to have your award certificate early, this does mean that you will not be able to attend a ceremony in person. If you wish to be present at a ceremony you will have to graduate in the usual way and wait to receive your certificate at the ceremony.
If you need to receive your certificate early and wish to apply for the inter-ceremony graduation, please contact the Student Registry latest by 13 February for the inter-ceremony in March and 13 September for the inter-ceremony in October.
If you have any queries or if you need any further information, then please contact the Graduation Office. We hope to make this graduation day a special and memorable day for you and your families. We can also be reached by telephone at +6(03) 8924 8636 or +6(03) 8725 3476 /3469 /3734 /3735 /3793.
