What does Graduation mean to you?
Graduation is like a rite-of-passage. Students come to us to learn, develop and grow. This occasion marks that transformation from student to graduate, and for our graduates, to professional. They are now able to go out equipped to practice in their chosen field.
Take a look back at some of our graduation ceremony videos spanning recent years, from 2013 - 2017.
Please settle any accounts you have with the AECC University College. The date to pay off any outstanding debts is 31 July 2019.
If you have any outstanding tuition fees your certificate will be withheld until these have been cleared. Please also return any library books and other property belonging to the AECC University College or Clinics.
The majority of students receive their certificate on graduation day.
