Types of documents
This is your official record of study at Deakin. It lists your course, units, majors and specialisations, grades, dates of study and any honours. Prospective employers may use it to verify your qualifications.
A testamur (or certificate) is the award certificate and official document that confirms the conferral of your course and includes your majors and specialisations, distinction and honours, if awarded.
A replacement hardcopy testamur will only be issued once the completed replacement testamur form has been sent to the Graduations Office.
Unfortunately we can't replace testamurs from institutions that are no longer part of Deakin, such as the State College of Victoria (Geelong and Warrnambool), Institute of Advanced Education (IAE) or Victoria College (Burwood, Toorak and Clayton).
Your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) includes your award, full academic results (including failures and late withdrawals), prizes, internships and information about Deakin and Australia’s higher education system. The AHEGS helps international audiences understand your qualifications.
AHEGS are only available for courses conferred from 2010 onwards. AHEGS for awards completed prior to 2010 are not available.
Statement of Results
Your Statement of Results (or evidence of enrolment) is an unofficial record of your results. It's free and current students can access one through StudentConnect. If you no longer have access to StudentConnect please contact Student Central.
A Statement of Results is not available for antecedent institutions of Deakin University, such as the Gordon Institute of Technology, State College of Victoria (Geelong/Warrnambool), IAE and Victoria College (Burwood/Toorak/Clayton).

You might want to do this if you already have a My eQuals account with another education provider.

If you're a law graduate wanting to practice law, the Board of Examiners (Victorian Legal Admissions Board) needs a copy of your transcript and Academic Conduct Report.
If you're an education graduate, we'll automatically send your results to the Victorian Institute of Teaching. So, no need to do anything.
Appellations (or postnominals) are letters that can feature after your name once your award has been conferred. They're abbreviations of your qualifications that relate to the degree you've completed and can assist people in identifying your level of education.
