AFTRS graduation ceremonies are a celebration of the student’s achievements and the completion of their academic course requirements.

If you are graduating in 2023, you will receive an invitation to your graduation ceremony for the presentation of your academic transcript and testamur in April 2023.

Please note you must complete the exit clearance process prior to graduation. The 2023 graduation ceremony will take place on Friday 12 May at 5.00 pm.


$75.00 per graduand to attend the graduation ceremony, which is inclusive of gown hire and refreshments for you and up to two guests.


Currently, each graduand is permitted to invite a maximum of two guests to attend the ceremony. We will release further guest tickets at a cost of $40 until sold out.

You will receive further information regarding registration and payment of your graduation fee with your invitation.

The ceremony will be privately live-streamed to allow for graduands, families, friends and AFTRS staff to participate if they’re unable to attend in person.

If you have any questions, please email events@aftrs.edu.au.
