August ceremony 2020
If you were conferred in August but deferred your graduation, you can now view your August virtual ceremony.
You will also receive an invitation to the 2021 graduation celebration event.
December ceremony 2020
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, restrictions on large-scale events remain in place. As such, we have carefully considered how we can continue to recognise and celebrate our students' success, despite the challenges of distance, in the safest way possible.
To mark this exceptional milestone as scheduled, Victoria University will hold a Home Graduation Ceremony to commemorate the achievements of our graduates in a virtual format.
Together with our University graduation partner, GFP, we are providing a unique experience encompassing the most valued elements of graduation. This will be celebrated at home, with our graduates surrounded and supported by their family and friends.
Graduates can get involved in the at Home Graduation Celebration via the streamed ceremony. They will also have the option to hire regalia and book professional photography.
- All colleges - Wednesday 16 December 2020, 6pm
- VU Research - Thursday 17 December 2020, 6pm
Eligible students will receive an email with full ceremony details and options between mid-November and Friday 4 December.
A link to your ceremony broadcast will also be emailed to you prior to the event.
