All ALC higher education courses are accredited through the University of Divinity. ALC graduating students have the option to attend a graduation ceremony run by the University either in Melbourne or in Adelaide.

Students unable to attend the graduation ceremony are awarded their qualification in absentia.

Conferral of an award is subject to satisfactory course completion by the specified date and contingent upon payment of all outstanding fees.

For further information see University of Divinity graduation.

Survey for award graduates

Each year University of Divinity graduates are invited to participate in the Australian Graduate Survey. This national survey, coordinated by Graduate Careers Australia together with participating higher education institutions, is designed to collect information about the experience of each student during their course and the type of work or further study being undertaken after completing a course.

Your response to the survey is confidential. All survey reports are aggregated and no information that identifies you personally is disclosed. Please take time to complete the survey to assist our future students.
