Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement

What is an AHEGS?

The AHEGS (Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement) is the result of a Commonwealth Government initiative that aims to make Australian qualifications recognised throughout the world. The AHEGS aims to provide greater transparency about the level and context of an award, and the status of a Graduate's achievements. AHEGS include details of any prizes, scholarships and grants a graduate may have been awarded. The statement contains details and features of your conferred award, and this is particularly relevant to graduates and employers where practical experience is a component of the program. Where professional recognition is part of a conferred award, it will be included in the statement.

When do students receive an AHEGS?

One copy of the AHEGS (Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement) will be mailed to graduates who are conferred in an award on or after 20 December 2010 (an AHEGs will not be issued to students who were conferred in an award before this date). It is important that the mailing address on your student record is kept up to date to ensure your AHEGS can be sent to you. You may change your address details in myUniSA or by contacting Campus Central. Please note if you do not receive your AHEGS because your address details are incorrect a fee is required to have a replacement statement issued.
