Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)
The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is the Australian equivalent of the European Diploma Supplement. It takes the form of a document provided to graduates by the awarding institution.
An AHEGS is issued in addition to other documentation, such as testamurs and academic transcripts. Its purpose is to describe a higher education qualification in an easily understandable way, providing greater transparency by including descriptions of the nature, level, context and status of the studies undertaken as well as information about the education system to which the qualification belongs.
The AHEGS is strongly supported by Australian universities, higher education providers and other stakeholders to assist students seeking employment or further studies both in Australia and abroad. It has the potential to make Australian awards better understood internationally and thus enhance the international mobility of graduates and Australia's competitiveness in the international higher education export market.
