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

You will receive an invitation to your graduation ceremony for the presentation of your academic transcript and testamur in April 2021.

Please note you must complete the exit clearance process prior to graduation.

The next graduation ceremony will be on Friday 21 May 2021.


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


Due to limited capacity, each graduand is permitted to invite a maximum of two guests to attend the ceremony. However, we may release further guest tickets closer to the ceremony upon consideration of registered attendees.

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

Please note 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.


AFTRS Graduate Showcase will take place from Tuesday 18 – Thursday 20 May 2021. More details on the program and how you can participate will be circulated soon.
