Here you can find information about completing your studies at UNSW.
Be sure to attend our upcoming information sessions. Student Life will coordinate three information sessions this term for international students who are due to complete their studies:
- Staying in Australia
- Preparing to Return Home
- Temporary Graduate Visa - Subclass 485
If you wish to stay in Australia to attend your graduation ceremony, please contact the Australian Government's Department of Home Affairs (concerning immigration) to discuss your visa options.
Before contacting the Department of Home Affairs, confirm your graduation date. You will need this information, and an Award and Enrolment Statement (completion letter) if you apply for an alternate visa to remain in Australia for your graduation.
You can invite your parents to Australia to attend your Graduation Ceremony. To do this, you need to write an invitation letter to your parents indicating you wish your parents to attend your Graduation Ceremony in Australia. You will need to demonstrate you have completed your degree and are graduating. You will need an Award Statement.
