Melbourne graduation ceremonies have been further postponed to 2022 and all graduates communicated with.

Our students’ university experience culminates with their graduation. It is a significant event in the university’s calendar and an opportunity for staff to offer a final show of support and celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates.

All staff with a university degree or diploma are welcome to participate in the academic procession at the ceremonies.
