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.

National Public Holiday Thursday 22 September

Thursday 22 September has been declared a public holiday in observance of a National Day of Mourning to mark the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. As a result, the University has rescheduled Graduation Ceremonies originally planned for this date.

The Graduation Ceremonies scheduled for 10am and 2pm on Wednesday 21 September and Friday 23 September have not been impacted.
