All graduates of The University of Western Australia are permanent members of the Convocation of UWA Graduates.

Through Convocation, graduates have a life-long relationship with the University of Western Australia. Convocation is one the four constituent bodies of the University (along with staff, the students and the Senate), as defined in the University of Western Australia Act of 1911.

Many great Universities are defined by their graduate associations, which stand to guard and augment the reputation of their universities.

Membership of Convocation is open to members of academic staff of the University as well as graduates. Community members who are not graduates can also apply, provided they can demonstrate an ongoing interest in the well-being and advancement of the University. Supporting members of Convocation are entitled to certain benefits.

The University of Western Australia needs a strong and vibrant graduate community. Convocation works to:
  • Enhance the reputation of the University.
  • Maintain a long-standing commitment to undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships, bursaries, and awards.
  • Encourage good governance of the University through the election of members of Convocation to the University Senate and the Council of Convocation.
  • Bring graduates together in a range of activities, including reunions.
  • Invite influential speakers to address Ordinary Meetings of Convocation in March and September annually.
