August ceremony 2020
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, restrictions on large-scale events are likely to remain in place through August and into the future. 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 an inaugural Online Graduation Ceremony to commemorate the achievements of our graduates. August graduation will take via a virtual format - @Home Graduation Celebration.
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 will get involved in the @Home Graduation Celebration via the streamed ceremony, the option to hire regalia, and the ability to book professional photography.
August 2020 graduations will take place on Thursday 20 August from 6pm.
Eligible students will receive an email by 17 July with detailed information on the ceremony format and the available options.
December ceremony 2020
Due to the current COVID-19 situation the University is currently not able to advise if face to face graduation ceremonies will be able to be held in December.
We will update this page when more details are available.
