Ceremony Dates and Deadlines

Information about upcoming University of Adelaide graduation ceremonies and In Absentia rounds can be found on this page. Graduation ceremonies are held in Adelaide in April/May and September each year.

April May 2021 graduation ceremonies

The April May 2021 graduation ceremonies are provisionally scheduled to be held between Monday 12 April to Friday 7 May 2021^.

^ A University of Adelaide closure period will occur between Monday 19 to Friday 23 April 2021. There will be no graduation ceremonies scheduled during this week.

Disclaimer: Please note that the above dates and the format of the graduation ceremonies are subject to change, depending on the development of the COVID-19 situation and related SA Health restrictions in South Australia.

At present, continuing SA Health restrictions have meant that the University is limited in managing events. In October and November 2020 the University held Graduation Celebration Events for our graduates. You can view videos of these events on our Past Graduation Ceremonies website. In order to preserve the safety of graduates, guests and staff, the capacity restrictions do not allow for guest attendance in Bonython Hall. We hope to have guests on campus in a number of our lecture theatres to watch the live-streamed event.

September 2021 graduation ceremonies

The provisional dates for the September 2021 graduation ceremonies will be updated on this website shortly.
