Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)

The University of Newcastle provides students with an Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS). The AHEGS doesn't replace the testamur or academic transcript, but instead, it describes your qualification in a clear and consistent way to potential employers and other higher education institutions.

AHEGS has the potential to make Australian awards better understood internationally, enhancing the mobility of Australian graduates and our competitiveness in the international higher education market.

The AHEGS lists the following information:

  • your award
  • awarding institution
  • your academic achievements
  • description of the Australian Higher Education System.
