4-8 - Are you needing help to connect with UWA specialist support services?

UWA Student Welfare provides support, advise and helps connect students with specialist support services, both on campus and within the community.

Our team can help talk through accommodation, study support, general life events or help connect you with specialist health and wellbeing services welfare officers. If you are worried or simply need someone to talk to Student Welfare can be reached by email at or by phone through Student Wellbeing 6488 2427.

4-9 - What if I'm due to graduate?

Due to COVID-19 and the Federal Government’s ban on gatherings, the July and December 2020 rounds of graduation ceremonies have been postponed. If you are eligible to graduate, you will be graduated in absentia (without being present) at the first available date after your completion is confirmed.

You will be invited to attend a ceremony of your choosing within the next two years, once gatherings are permitted again.

Your hard copy award certificate will be posted to your semester address (as recorded in studentConnect) within 10 days of your in absentia graduation date. Certificates are posted by registered post within Australia, and DHL Courier for overseas. You will also receive a digital testamur and Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement via My eQuals within 48 hours of your in absentia conferral.

This decision has been made to ensure that our graduates are able to receive their confirmation of completion and continue with their career planning, while also recognising the importance of being able to have friends and family attend the face-to-face graduation ceremony event as a celebration, at a later time. Our highest priority is the safety of our staff, students, and the wider community.

Students with enquiries regarding exams, progression and graduations can contact us via askUWA for individual advice and support.
