Charles Darwin University will celebrate another milestone moment in its 25-year history next month when it conducts its first interstate graduation ceremony.

Some 118 higher education students and two vocational education and training students will be acknowledged for their academic achievements at a ceremony at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 17 June.

Office of Student Administration and Equity Services Director Edwina Grose said students from across all three faculties would participate in the event.

“Our Chancellor Her Honour the Honourable Sally Thomas will confer qualifications ranging from certificate and diploma through to bachelor and two doctorates,” Ms Grose said.

“The group will include 32 teaching and learning graduands and 26 nursing graduands, nine from law and eight from the behavioural sciences.”

Ms Grose said that while most graduands were from either South Australia (71) or Victoria (31), all mainland Australian jurisdictions would be represented and one student was attending from overseas.

“This event reflects our commitment to providing a broad range of high quality, flexible, online courses to students regardless of their location,” Ms Grose said.

“A total of 3056 students will graduate during the mid-year round, which also includes events in Darwin and Alice Springs.”

Details about the mid-year graduation ceremonies are available on the CDU website.
