Apply to graduate at a ceremony or in absentia

If you’re expecting to complete your studies at the end of 2021 and you want to attend the Melbourne Graduation Ceremony, make sure you select the 2021 Melbourne Graduation Ceremony when you apply. If you want to graduate in absentia, please select this option.

If you graduate in absentia, you'll confer (graduate) at the end of the month that your school confirms you've completed your program. Within one week after you graduate, you'll automatically be given access to your digital Testamur or VE Qualification Statement via My eQuals and will be able to order your hard copy to be sent to you by post.

Note: Past students (excluding SIM, Vietnam, SUIBE, Hong Kong and KAPLAN students) who graduated in absentia in 2020 and 2021 will also be invited to attend the 2021 Melbourne Graduation Ceremony. Check your personal email address for updates closer to the time.
