IMPORTANT NOTE: We are excited to announce that the Mackay, Townsville, Cairns and Bundaberg Graduation ceremonies have been rescheduled. In order for these ceremonies to take place the university needs to follow strict COVID-19 guidelines, this means that only students who permanently live in the ceremony region will be able to attend (If you are unsure that your region is in the included area please email the Events and Graduation Team at Events@cqu.edu.au). We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause however the health and safety of our graduates, staff and the community are the university’s priority. Please note that at this stage, we plan to host ceremonies in Brisbane, Melbourne, Rockhampton and Sydney in December, however this is subject to change depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold.
