Graduation 2020 may be different, but your achievements are just as exceptional. We'll still be celebrating with you!

Graduating in the year of COVID-19

We've decided, with heavy hearts, to cancel the Melbourne Graduation Ceremony and Parade, scheduled for 16 December 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a dramatic impact on how we work, live and study. In the interests of our community's safety and wellbeing, as well as the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions, we will no longer be holding large-scale Graduation events. 

If you're completing your program in 2020*, your award will be conferred (you’ll graduate) in absentia at the end of the month that your school marks you as complete from your program.  Up to two working days after your award has been conferred, you’ll get access to your digital academic statements via My eQuals, and you’ll also be able to purchase your hard copy academic statements online.  You’ll still be invited to celebrate your achievements with your classmates, friends and family at a 2021 ceremony.

*Excluding SIM, Vietnam and SUIBE students.

The Graduation 2020 process

Only applicable to 2020 graduates, in response to cancelled 2020 ceremonies due to COVID-19 restrictions.

We'll still be celebrating with you in 2020! 

We know that graduating is a huge milestone, and we want to ensure we still mark this occasion with you. We're currently planning celebratory events that you'll be able to share with your classmates, friends and family. 

We'll update the Graduation events section below as more details are confirmed.
