Pick-up in person
Your testamur is available for pickup from The Nucleus: Student Hub (Kensington) one working day AFTER your scheduled graduation ceremony.
If you want a third party (friend or family member) to collect your testamur for you, you must first submit a Third Party Authorisation Form. Your Testamur will not be released to anyone other than you unless you have submitted this form.
You can arrange to have your testamur mailed to you by updating your details on the Graduation Details page on myUNSW prior to the RSVP deadline. Go to My Student Profile tab > My Student Services channel > Graduations > Graduation Details.
If you need to update your preference after the RSVP deadline email the Graduations Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Testamurs are posted out progressively at the END of the graduation period. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery from the date of your ceremony. Testamurs are delivered within Australia by Registered Post, and via courier to overseas addresses. Please note that couriers do not deliver to overseas postal boxes as items must be signed for on delivery.
If you need your Testamur for work purposes before the date of your ceremony, please email email@example.com explaining why you are requesting the early release of your documents.
Replacing your testamur
You can order a replacement if your testamur is lost or damaged.
What is a testamur?
A testamur is the official certification of a student's completion of a degree, diploma or certificate obtained at the University of New South Wales. It contains the signatures of the Chancellor, the President and Vice-Chancellor, and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic, and bears the official seal of the University. It also contains the name of the graduate, award title and date of award conferral.
Majors are indicated; Minors do not appear on the testamur but are noted on the official academic transcript.
Testamurs are awarded at graduation ceremonies. Graduates are also presented with a copy of their academic transcript and Australian Higher Education Statement (AHEGS).
