Virtual Graduation

Until restrictions are lifted and it is safe to celebrate with you in person, you may like to attend our Virtual Graduation event on Friday, 18 September. Virtual Graduation is an opportunity to reflect on the hard work and dedication that went into your degree, and for you to be acknowledged by CQUniversity. You will hear from special guest speakers including CQUniversity Chancellor Mr John Abbott AM and Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Nick Klomp.

You are welcome to attend both Virtual Graduation as well as an on-campus ceremony at a later date.
