University of Waikato graduation ceremonies

Graduation ceremonies for December postponed

Due to the restrictions around holding gatherings at Alert Level 2 and the uncertainty of when these might ease, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our December graduation ceremonies in Hamilton and Tauranga.

Students can still graduate from the University of Waikato in one of two ways:

  1. April 2022 ceremonies: All graduands expecting to graduate this December will automatically be deferred to ceremonies scheduled for April 2022.
  2. In absentia: If students do not wish to wait until April 2022, they can choose to graduate in absentia, meaning their qualification will be awarded without them needing to be physically present.
