Additional information:
The Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) is Australia’s Diploma supplement equivalent and is currently in the process of being implemented at Australian universities and some Australian private higher education institutions. The AHEGS aims to provide information about a student’s course of study, their academic achievements and the Australian higher education system in one document so that students can use their qualification for overseas employment and further education. Universities who have implemented the AHEGS will issue them to both domestic and international students.
