Graduation documents

When you complete your course you will receive graduation documents such as a testamur, academic transcript and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).

Most students can choose to collect these documents at their graduation ceremony or have them posted. Find out more about the graduation process and receiving your graduation documents. 


A testamur is a legal document with the university seal that includes:

  • your name
  • course title
  • the signatures of the chancellor, vice-chancellor and registrar
  • the date of conferral.

Academic transcript

This an official, signed record of your academic history. It includes vital information such as:

  • results/marks
  • completion and graduation dates
  • majors and minors
  • Work Integrated Learning
  • honours level

You can also sign in to My Results to download an unofficial statement of results as soon as your final results are released.

All higher education students receive the AHEGS when they graduate.

The AHEGS provides detailed information on your higher education qualification, including the institution where you obtained it, in one easy-to-read document.
