Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)

AHEGS is a Commonwealth initiative introduced to describe higher education qualification in a way that is easy to understand. AHEGS is available only for students in Faculty of Business who graduated from 2010 onward and students in other Faculties who graduated from Semester 2, 2010 onward.  Your AHEGS includes:

  • details of your graduated program
  • grades achieved in courses within your program
  • exemptions granted within your program
  • special achievements (prizes & awards) within your program, and
  • description of the Australian Higher Education System
