Commencement Programs

New candidates in research degrees must complete a mandatory Commencement Program in their first year of study. The program has two components: (1) an introduction to University-wide resources and requirements for all candidates which is delivered as a one-day presentation called the "Central Commencement Program"; and (2), a component delivered within your faculty called the "Faculty Commencement Program".

Commencement Program for New Research Candidates - 2017

CCP for Session 1 will be held Thursday, 23 February, 9:00 - 9:30am Registration, E7B Mason Theatre.

Central Commencement Program for MRes Candidates - 2017

CCP for MRes candidates are only held once a year.  The next CCP session for MRes will be held on Monday, 20 February 2017, 9:00- 9:30am Registration, X5B T1.

Please note that the MRes CCP does not have an online version and there is no CCP for Session 2.
