It is time to celebrate the incredible achievement and milestone of completing your degree!

We are excited to be heading back to Hawthorn Town Hall / Arts Centre, on Friday 7th May for our evening ceremony.

Join staff and fellow students for a night of achievement, celebration, and joy. 

Graduands are asked to report to the Town Hall by 3:30 pm for gowning and photography.

Family and guests should arrive by not later than 5:45 pm to be seated (doors close at 6:00 pm). The ceremony finishes around 8:30 pm, followed by official group photography, wine and light refreshments, with entertainment until 9:00 pm

Our graduation ceremonies will follow COVIDSafe protocols and are subject to change to follow the latest government directives. If there are any changes to the planned ceremonies, we will be in touch with students directly via email. 


Please Note

This event is for the 2021 graduates who completed courses on or after 28 February 2020 and will complete on or before 28 February 2021, who have not yet formally graduated from the degree.

For those who are graduating in person at the ceremony, please ensure your guest's details are correctly filled out or they will not be accepted into the event. For any change requests, please email [email protected].

Full Name Pronunciation

If you select that you are attending the ceremony you will be asked to give a pronunciation guide for how we should read out your full name. Please do not just write your name in the ‘pronunciation’ field on your ticket.

Normally a pronunciation guide would space out the syllables with hyphens, you can also capitalise a syllable if it needs more emphasis. For example, the pronunciation guide for ‘Saphron Hastie’ is: Saff-ron HAY-stee.
