In response to COVID-19, earlier this year the University made the difficult decision to cancel 2020 graduation ceremonies.

Government restrictions and health advice regarding physical distancing have made it unrealistic to plan for or host large scale in-person events into the future.

Although we are disappointed that we are unable to offer a face-to-face graduation experience at this time, we do understand how important a graduation celebration is for students and their families, and how important it is to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of graduates.

We are inviting graduates to participate in a virtual graduation event in March 2021, for all students who have been unable to attend a graduation ceremony in 2020. This customised event will be an opportunity for graduates, their loved ones and university staff to come together and celebrate the achievements of UOW’s graduating class of 2020 through what has undoubtedly been a challenging year.

Further information as well as frequently asked questions regarding graduation can be found on our Graduation website.
