Graduation & prizes



July 2014 Conferring of Awards

Potential graduands will be identified in April. You will be able to check your ISIS account after the 10th April to ensure you are being assessed. ISIS will reflect the outcome of your assessment in mid-May.

If you believe you should be identified as a potential graduand and cannot see this reflected in ISIS after the 10th April, please contact the Graduations Office as soon as possible.


Invitations to Graduate will be emailed to your University student email account in mid to late May. Only students with an inactive university email account will receive a hard copy invitation.

Online documents 

In July 2010 ANU commenced providing formal University documents to graduates in a secure electronic format via Digitary®. These academic documents are available two to three weeks following the main graduation periods.

Completing an award at ANU is a significant academic achievement and is rightly celebrated at the University's prestigious Conferring of Awards ceremonies.

Conferring of Awards ceremonies are happy, inspiring events that have both formal and symbolic significance.

Graduands (students who are eligible to graduate) are presented with their award at the ceremony at which point they become a graduate.

Graduands are able to graduate in absentia (without attending a ceremony) if they are unable to attend a ceremony.


We offer a range of prizes to enable high achieving students across all levels of study to access our programs and to be recognised and rewarded for their achievements.

A prize may be awarded as a result of an assessment, a thesis or a combination of academic assessments. Other special qualities in a student, eg leadership and contribution to University life, may also be rewarded. A prize may take the form of monetary reward and/or certificate, medal, book voucher, equipment or subscription to a professional organisation, plaque or other token.
