All qualifications due to be awarded at the ceremonies will be granted by the University Council at its meeting on 4 May, and a digital copy of degree certificates will be issued to My eQuals, the official platform for certified transcripts and degree documents. The University will send a physical copy of the certificate to graduands as soon as it can and will reschedule the ceremonies when it becomes possible. All graduands will be able to attend a ceremony if they wish to.
”We understand that this will be disappointing to students, staff, whānau, friends, and supporters who have been looking forward to the May ceremonies,” says the University’s Chancellor, Neil Paviour-Smith. “However, the health, safety, and wellbeing of all our students, staff, and community is our top priority and it is clear it is not feasible to proceed with these events as planned.”
The Graduation Office has emailed all graduating students with information regarding the next steps. If you have any further questions you can contact the Graduation Office on email@example.com.
