Important information for Graduates


Graduation is a formal event and graduands will be required to wear regalia according to your qualification. You are responsible for getting your own regalia and can either hire, or purchase you own for the occasion. 

Hire regalia
Regalia can be hired from Academic Dress Hire and can be ordered online.

Etude Classique

Dress code

The dress code is smart casual so you are expected to dress accordingly. Wearing Korowai or garlands over your regalia is permitted.

Guest Tickets

Each graduating student who is attending Graduation can redeem up to 3 complimentary tickets so that friends and family join in the celebration of your great achievement. Extra tickets will be available for purchase at $5.00 per ticket on a first come first served basis and are very limited. Any unclaimed guest tickets will be made available for the public purchase the week prior to the ceremony. Further information on ticket sales and redemption dates will be sent to you via email.


Children over the age of two need a ticket. They must be closely supervised and accompanied by an adult (who is not graduating) at all times as there are no childcare services. Graduation ceremonies are formal occasions and children can often find them uncomfortable. Guests with young children should sit next to or near an aisle so they can easily leave the hall if necessary.
