Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)

Purpose

The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is issued to graduates at the time of conferral (graduation). It provides information on the award that the graduate has completed, their academic results, the institution they have studied at and the Australian higher education system. It is designed to promote a greater understanding of Australian higher education qualifications and graduates, both in Australia and internationally, and enhance the international mobility and professional recognition of graduates. 

Deakin University will produce AHEGS for all students graduating from October 2010 onwards. Graduates will receive their Graduation Statement in person at their graduation ceremony or for in absentia graduates, it will be mailed with their testamur (award certificate). You will not need to request or pay for a Graduation Statement in the first instance. The statements will be automatically issued at the time of graduation.

Replacement AHEGS charges 
Replacement of AHEGS and postage to an address within Australia$40
Replacement of AHEGS and postage to an overseas address$60
Additional copies of AHEGS when ordered with replacement$10

Information which is included in AHEGS

The Graduation Statement includes details on the award conferred, the awarding institution, academic results, any prizes and/or merit-based scholarships awarded to the graduate in relation to the award and a description of the Australian higher education system.

The Graduation Statement content is set by the University, and meets the AHEGS guidelines set out by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIICCSRTE). Therefore it is not possible to have individual variations on the Graduation Statement.
