Students to graduate in style 


Testamurs, mortarboards and robes will be the fashion this week in Darwin when CDU holds its end-of-year graduation ceremony.

More than 250 graduands will robe up to receive formal recognition of the successful completion of their studies.

Some 1100 students will officially graduate as a part of the ceremony, which recognises the academic achievements of students from both the higher education and Vocational Education and Training sectors.

A total of five PhDs will be awarded, along with an Honorary Doctorate.

Former Minister in the Northern Territory Government and current radio identity, Daryl Manzie will be recognised with an Honorary Doctorate for his contribution to the advancement of the Territory agenda through his service as a police officer, Government Minister and patron of various organisations.

Mr Manzie will also deliver the occasional address, with Bachelor of Laws with Second Class Honours Division A student, Michael Podgorny to give the students’ response.

The ceremony will recognise graduates from all of the University’s faculties and vocational education divisions.

The end-of-year graduation ceremony will be held on Friday, 15 October at the Darwin Convention Centre. Guests will arrive at 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start.
