Receiving Your Parchment on Stage

Your parchment and transcript have already or will be mailed to you in the months following the completion of your degree. Due to this, official documentation will not be presented to you on the day of graduation.

Upon walking across the graduation stage, you will be presented with a generic parchment scroll for the purpose of your stage photo. This scroll will not be personalised individually with your name but is yours to keep as a momento of the day.

Graduands Name on Parchment 

Your full legal name, as recorded in the AIB student management system, will appear on the parchment and official academic transcript and this is what will be read out on the day. If you wish to change your name from what is recorded in the student management system, you will be required to provide a certified true copy of legal documentation by the cut-off date, as noted in your course completion email. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you wish to provide the phonetic spelling of your name, please email  graduation@aib.edu.au by Friday, 30th September 2022.

It is compulsory for graduands participating in a graduation ceremony to wear the appropriate AIB academic regalia. The hire fee is included in the graduand ticket price and when you place your order you will be able to select your size and height – this will enable us to ensure you have the correct size on the day. 

It is important to note the gown is black in colour, and open at the front, therefore what you are wearing underneath is visible.  It is for this reason we recommend you wear business attire, and comfortable shoes.  If the day is warm, you may want to remove your jacket as the gowns are quite heavy and it may get hot in the auditorium.

We ask that you please return your hire items straight after the ceremony, apart from your mortarboard, which is yours to keep! Unfortunately, if they are not returned to us, you will be invoiced the full replacement cost of the academic regalia. 

We ask that all graduands and guests travelling interstate for the graduation ceremony and optional cocktail party adhere to their individual state as well as the South Australia government’s guidance regarding any COVID-19 border regulations and restrictions in place at the time of the event.

As the situation is continually evolving we ask that you pay special attention to the South Australia Police website updates, as well as the Government of South Australia website and the COVID-19 Restriction Checker.

AIB will not be liable for travellers who have not adhered to the South Australian border regulations and are unable to successfully cross into South Australia.

We are so excited to finally be able to welcome all our international students to Adelaide for this event, after our border closures. For further clarification and information regarding Australian Government travel laws, advice and allowances, please head to the following website. 

For those graduands that require an invitation letter from us to assist with their visa application, please email graduation@aib.edu.au and provide your full name, student ID, passport number, expiry date and date of birth. You will also need to provide these details for any guests that will be accompanying you who are included in your visa application. 

We will have professional photographers there on the day taking photos throughout the event. We will also be taking photos of each graduand’s conferral of award on stage and these will then be available for purchase on the day. 

 

We will also have the following bundles and packages available on the day:
