Completing the pronunciation of your name in the Confirmation of Attendance
How do I complete the pronunciation of my name in the Confirmation of Attendance?
At the ceremony the presenter, usually your Dean &/or Head of School, will read out your name in full just before you cross the stage. If your name is not a common one in Australia or difficult to pronounce it is helpful to provide the presenter with some guidance.
Below are some examples of pronunciation:
Paul Harvey von Bergheim = Paul Harvey von Berg-hime
Hooi Peng Soon = Hoo-ee P-eng S-oon
Rebecca Malkkah Lachovitzki = Rebecca Mul-ka Lah-koh-vitz-kee
You can also visit the website Pronounce Names for further assistance.
The presenter will read out your full name as it appears on your degree certificate. Please do not:
- Include nicknames or abbreviations in your pronunciation; if you do, it will be changed.
- Write your full name in your pronunciation. Write the pronunciation or leave it blank.
- Include 'sounds like' or 'rhymes with' in your pronunciation; if you do, it will be deleted.
