EIT Graduation Ceremony Information

As the situation around COVID-19 continues to develop, we would like to let you know that all graduation ceremonies in Hawke’s Bay, Tairāwhiti and Auckland have been cancelled.

This decision was not an easy one to make, and we are sorry for any inconvenience and understand your disappointment. We are disappointed too.

However, we are strictly following the recommendations coming from the Ministry of Health, public health agencies and the government.  

We want to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of EIT students and staff remains our top priority. And this is the most important phase to keep COVID-19 out of Hawke’s Bay.

If you are a graduate and you wish to have your qualification achievement recognised, you are invited to attend next year’s ceremonies. We will post the qualification awards to all graduates shortly along with a copy of the ceremony programme. 

We will have more information for you about arranging a refund. Please check your email for more information.
