You can still apply to graduate even if you're still waiting on your final grade. Your ability to graduate will be confirmed once we are able to ratify that all of your programme requirements have been met.

The following cohorts will be eligible to graduate in the September 2024 Graduation Ceremony.

Graduation is a formal celebration, you're required to wear the correct academic regalia for your qualification, and you can hire your regalia from Academic Dress Hire.

Feel free to also wear traditional wear in honour of your culture or home country, such as a korowai, traditional flower garland or sari.


Each graduating student will be able to bring up to 2 guests to the ceremony to celebrate with them. Please indicate how many people you are bringing when you apply to graduate, and if this number changes please get in touch. While we'd love to have everybody join us on the day, seating at the venue is limited so we ask that you please only bring your allocated guests with you, so that it is fair for all graduates and their whanau.

If you’d like to request to bring more guests, please contact and we will let you know if more places become available once applications to graduate close.
