You must apply to graduate in order to have your course conferred. Conferral is the act of 'officially validating' or awarding your course and qualification.
From 2023 onwards, all students studying in Australia must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) to obtain a qualification. It's free to create a USI and only takes 5 minutes. Please note: you do not need a USI if you are studying offshore (outside of Australia).
After conferral of your course you can:
- use your qualifications
- use your title eg Dr (if applicable)
- use your postnominals
- receive your official academic documents
- receive an invitation to attend a future graduation ceremony
Students studying in Australia can refer to the graduation key dates for dates relating to applications, ceremonies, fees and changing preferences.
Students studying at a partner campus offshore can refer to the Offshore Graduation web page for important information regarding their graduation application.
