Medals and with Distinction

If you've recently completed the final semester of your academic program, and have received your Congratulations Graduand! email, you could also be eligible for a medal or with Distinction.

Your Faculty will automatically assess your eligibility, and you will be notified by the Graduations Office at the appropriate time (see the table below).

University Medals, the University's most prestigious award, are awarded to a small number of graduates whose academic performance in the graded courses of the program studied has been consistently of the highest order, and who have displayed high levels of independent and critical thought, and effective communication.

Faculty Medals are awarded to graduates whose academic performance in the graded courses of the program studied has been consistently of the highest order, and who have displayed high levels of independent and critical thought and effective communication.
