Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)
The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is issued to graduates at the time of their graduation ceremony.
The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is a Commonwealth initiative that has been introduced to improve the recognition and portability of Australian qualifications. It is designed to promote a greater understanding of Australian higher education qualifications and graduates, both in Australia and internationally.
The University of New England will produce AHEGS for all students graduating from October 2010 onwards. Graduates of the October 2010 conferrals will receive their AHEGS by mail from mid December. Graduates of future conferrals will receive their AHEGS in person when they receive their testamur at their graduation ceremony or for inabsentia graduates, it will be mailed with their testamur.
The AHEGS will not be issued for any award conferred prior to October 2010.
The AHEGS will be issued at the time of graduation, you do not need to request one.
Information to be included in AHEGS
The AHEGS includes details on the award conferred, the awarding institution, academic results, any prizes and/or merit-based scholarships awarded to the graduate in relation to the award and a description of the Australian higher education system.
The AHEGS content is set by the University, and meets the AHEGS guidelines set out by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR). Therefore it is not possible to have individual variations on the AHEGS.
For more information on AHEGS please refer to the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations website.
