Graduates & Alumni

A highlight of the UCOL calendar is commemorating the achievements of our students at Graduation. Everyone who is involved in our students' study journey - from lecturers to whānau, gather together for what is a formal and enjoyable occasion.

This year, 1,800 new graduands are fueling the skills pipeline.

Note to students

If you are eligible to graduate (as a result of completing your programme at UCOL) you will need to apply. Upon doing so you'll receive a graduation pack with everything you need to know in January/February.

For Diploma and Degree graduands, academic regalia is required. In Palmerston North this is available from Academic Dress Hire. A Korowai may be worn by Māori graduands over their gown. Certificate graduands should wear smart casual attire.

Your academic record will be sent to you on completion of your programme. If you have any questions, contact Academic Records on (06) 952 7001 extn 70771, or email
