Following the successful completion of your studies and application to graduate, you are eligible to receive a testamur (certificate) from the University. The testamur will state the name of your qualification and the area(s) of major study.
Normally, this is presented to you at your graduation ceremony. However, if you are unable to attend and your degree is awarded "in absentia", arrangements will be made for you to receive your testamur by Registered Post (within Australia), or Courier (for international students). These are usually posted up to two weeks after the date of your graduation ceremony.
The testamur is a 'legal' document, issued by the authority of the Vice-Principal (Administration) and the Chancellor, and imprinted with the University Seal. If you misplace your testamur, a replacement testamur can be issued on application under Student Forms and Documents link. A replacement fee of $70.00 applies.
One copy of your academic transcript (an official record of all subjects attempted and corresponding results) is also provided with your testamur upon graduation. Additional copies are available from Student Central at a cost of $20.00 for two copies.
