Graduation key dates

The information on this page outlines the currently confirmed key dates for upcoming conferral periods. Make your selection below for information specific to your conferral and graduation ceremony.

Please note that 'conferral' is the act of officially validating your course. Once your course has been conferred, your official hardcopy documents will be mailed to your address and your official digital documents will be issued to My eQuals, and linked to your nominated email address.  You can also start using your qualification, title and post-nominals.

The graduation ceremony is the celebration of your conferral.
