Sydney

Please note: due to ongoing public health restrictions in Metropolitan and Greater Sydney, the La Trobe Sydney campus graduation on Thursday 19 August has been delayed.

Sydney Graduation 2021

Date: late 2021 - TBC

We will continue to monitor NSW Government restrictions as they relate to COVID Safe event delivery and hope to re-schedule for late 2021. You will be sent invitation six weeks before the next ceremony and you can tell us your graduation preference then.

Your graduation options:

1. Attend this ceremony
2. Defer to a later ceremony, or
3. Graduate in absentia (without attending a ceremony).

To avoid missing out on graduation:

  • Regularly check your La Trobe student email for updates.
  • Check that your contact details are correct in StudentOnLine.
  • Clear any overdue fees or debts with the University (check your statement of account and sanctions in StudentOnLine).

Note: If you do not choose one of the above options, you will automatically graduate in absentia. Graduating in absentia means you will not have the option to attend a ceremony, and you will need to request your testamur online after your original ceremony has concluded.

Why was graduation delayed?

The Sydney 2021 graduation has been postponed due to the current NSW Government health restrictions affecting Metropolitan and Greater Sydney.

When will Sydney graduations be postponed to?

We will continue to monitor NSW Government restrictions as they relate to COVID Safe event delivery and hope to re-schedule for late 2021. You will be sent invitation six weeks before the next ceremony and you can tell us your graduation preference then.
