Torrens University Australia and Think Education Graduation Ceremonies

Your Graduation Ceremony is the moment to celebrate all your hard work, sacrifices and effort you have gone through to complete your degree.

Torrens University Australia (TUA) and Think Education holds four (4) annual Graduation Ceremonies in different cities and times of the year so our students have the opportunity to join in the location of their convenience.

Graduation Information

To be eligible to graduate, you will need to have successfully:

  • Completed the total number of subjects (core and electives) required to complete your award.
  • Paid all your fees with the university including Library fees.
  • Provided all documents required for graduation, for example, your verified USI or placement completion documents (IF your award requires these documents).
  • Updated your personal contact information at the Student Portal, such as mailing address, personal e-mail address and mobile phone.

The next step in assessing your eligibility to graduate is academically assessing your work against the course requirements. If this assessment is successful you will proceed to graduation.

The assessment and approval process involves the review by the Examination Committee (VET/Vocational AND Higher Education students) and ratification by the Academic Board (Higher Education students only) prior to the conferral of the award to ensure that the student met all course requirements.

Please refer to the 'Graduation and Certification Policy' that can be found on the links below or contact Student Services for further information.
