Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)
The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is a Commonwealth initiative that has been introduced to make Australian qualifications recognised and renowned throughout the world.
The Graduation Statement describes higher education qualifications such as the award, the awarding institution and the Australian Higher Education System. This will provide potential employers and other institutions with a greater understanding of the achievements of the graduate.
The UTS AHEGS will contain details of
- the course,
- a description of UTS as the awarding institution,
- marks and final assessment attributed to the course (including the GPA if awarded for the course),
- special achievements, such as prizes and awards,
- details of particular course related achievements of the student if that information is available.
Details of the Australian Higher Education System will also be provided.
You can request additional copies of your AHEGS, after your graduation ceremony, by completing the "Application for Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement" on the SAU forms page.
An administrative charge is payable.
Eligibility to receive an AHEGS
Graduates who have their award conferred on or after the 18 August 2010 conferral date will receive a copy of their AHEGS along with their testamur and academic transcript whether they attend a ceremony or elect to collect or have the documents mailed to them.
If you receive a prize(s) from UTS after you graduate you may request a free replacement AHEGS from the Student Administration Unit that includes the details of the awards.
Graduates will not receive an AHEGS for awards conferred prior to the 18 August 2010 Conferral Date.
If you find that there is an error on your statement, such as a misprint or missing information, please complete the "Application for Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement" on the SAU forms page.
Instructions on completing and submitting this form are provided on the form. You will be required to return your original statement before a replacement will be issued.
Further information regarding the AHEGS may be obtained from the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.
