Accepting your certificate

As you reach the stage your name will be checked before it is announced. Once announced, walk across the stage to the Chancellor to receive your certificate. The ceremony photographer will be positioned in front of the stage to take a photo of the presentation. Following this you will then continue across the stage where an usher will direct you back to the graduand seating area.

After the ceremony

To make your night run more smoothly, arrange in advance where you will meet your guests after the ceremony. Waiting at the exits can cause congestion.

Return your regalia

Hired regalia must be returned to the regalia desk before you leave.

Studio and Stage Photography

Photographers will be available before and after the ceremony for studio portraits. A range of photo package options are available for you to choose from. Further information will be provided shortly.

The safety and wellbeing of our community is the number one priority for Murdoch University. Our graduation ceremonies will continue to adhere to current Government COVID-19 restrictions at the time of the event to provide an experience that enables us to celebrate in a safe manner.
