Graduation day

Western Sydney University has three graduation rounds in Australia each year: April, September and December.

The April and September graduations are open to all students in their final session.

December graduation ceremonies are invitation only. The invitation is limited to a strict cohort of students from a select group of courses. Unfortunately this means requests cannot be made to graduate in December outside of this cohort.

Find out more about attending your ceremony and your graduation regalia.

After your ceremony you will have the opportunity to purchase your Graduation plaque, photograph and testamur framing. More information about the services provided on the day is available on the Graduation memorabilia webpage.
