When you complete your course, you’ll receive graduation documents, including a testamur, academic transcript and (if relevant) the Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS). Learn more about your graduation documents.
Swinburne issues digital graduation documents using a secure digital platform called My eQuals. My eQuals is used by most Australian and New Zealand universities and allows you to securely share your documents online with anyone, including employers and other third parties.
What is a testamur?
A testamur is a legal document with the university seal that includes:
the signatures of the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and Academic Registrar
the date of conferral.
Printed testamur orders currently take a minimum of eight (8) weeks to process. Digital documents are available via My eQuals.
What is an academic transcript?
An academic transcript is an official, signed record of your academic history. It includes vital information such as:
completion and graduation dates
majors and minors
Work Integrated Learning
You can also sign in to My Results to download an unofficial statement of results as soon as your final results are released.
What is the Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)?
The AHEGS provides detailed information on your higher education qualification, including the institution where you obtained it, in one easy-to-read document. All higher education students receive the AHEGS when they graduate.
See more information on the AHEGS at the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training website.
What is a Statement of Attainment?
The Statement of Attainment is for vocational education students only and records all the successfully completed units of study within a nationally accredited vocation course.
