Auckland University Of Technology Graduation

Graduation is an opportunity to celebrate the successful completion of your qualification and it’s a special occasion you can share with friends, family and AUT staff.

We hold two graduations each year – Summer Graduation (December) and Winter Graduation (August). Each graduation day usually begins with a street procession, where graduating students and AUT staff walk from Albert Park to the graduation ceremony venue (normally the Aotea Centre).

This is a unique opportunity to see everyone in their official academic regalia, with some graduands wearing family korowai or other cultural adornments.

During the graduation ceremony itself, graduands are each presented with their degree or certificate. This formal ceremony takes around two hours, with family and friends invited to watch.

Graduation ceremony and procession

Make sure you’re ready for your graduation day. You can prepare by checking the information about academic dress, as well as learning what to expect during the street procession and ceremony.
