Students set to begin next chapter

More than 2500 University of Tasmania students are set to begin the next chapter of their lifelong education journey as Hobart hosts graduation ceremonies this week.

The Hobart ceremonies wrap-up similar events held across the State over the last week where graduands join family, friends and the broader University community to celebrate academic achievements.

“Graduations are a true community celebration,” University of Tasmania Vice-Chancellor Professor Rufus Black said.

“While we come together to congratulate students on their academic achievements, we also acknowledge the encouragement and support provided by the broader community which is invaluable in helping students reach their goals.

“We are extremely proud of our graduands and wish them every success.”

Hobart ceremonies begin on Tuesday (18 December) at the Federation Concert Hall and will continue on Wednesday (19 December) and Thursday (20 December).

The annual Town and Gown procession will be held on Wednesday (19 December) at 2.15pm, led by students participating in this year’s Children’s University Tasmania. The procession will start from Parliament House Gardens and arrive at the Federation Concert Hall.

Burnie and Launceston hosted graduation ceremonies over the last week, with more than 5000 students graduating from the University of Tasmania’s summer round of graduations.
