Scope and Content 

Graduates from the first 50 years of University of New South Wales (UNSW) courses offered in Canberra are listed in the graduation booklets 1971-2018.

These degree booklets were digitised for the 50th anniversary celebrations in February 2018. The digitisation was a joint project between UNSW Sydney Library, UNSW Canberra Academy Library Special Collections and UNSW Sydney Records and Archives. Hard copies of the booklets are held in Special Collections and Records and Archives.

The University of New South Wales presence in Canberra began when Agreements were signed in July 1967 to provide UNSW undergraduate courses at the RAN College (RANC), Jervis Bay, and to create the Faculty of Military Studies (FMS) at the Royal Military College (RMC), Duntroon. The relationship between UNSW and Defence was initially intended to be short-term. The Army hoped that Duntroon would be an autonomous degree-granting institution within ten years and that the other two Services might become adjunct campuses of ‘DuntroonUniversity’.

The Faculty of Military Studies began teaching at Duntroon in 1968 and continued until the end of 1985. The first UNSW graduation ceremony was held in 1971 on the RMC parade ground. Those members of the Graduating Class who had completed their military training and courses in the Faculty graduated with the University's degrees of Bachelor of Arts in Military Studies, Bachelor of Science in Military Studies, or Bachelor of Engineering. 

In 1986 the Australian Defence Force Academy opened adjacent to RMC and the “University College, UNSW at ADFA” became the degree conferring body for students from the Navy, the Army and the Air Force. It was formally renamed “UNSW Canberra” in 2012. The first degree ceremony at the Academy was held in 1986.

The booklet titles changed over time with the end of year event being referred to as a Graduation Ceremony, a Conferring of Awards, and a Conferring of Degrees. For some years there is more than one booklet. For example, if separate ceremonies were held by degree, there would be one booklet for Science and Engineering combined and another for Humanities and Social Science and, later, Business. For 1986 there are two relevant booklets. RMC lists the UNSW Army graduates and the UniversityCollege booklet lists the RAN and RAAF graduates.

These booklets contain the names of Navy, Army and Air Force students who gained a UNSW degree. There are separate booklets published by RMC and ADFA for the Military Graduation Parades, which are usually held the day after the degree ceremonies.

Biographical Note 

From 1968, UNSW Canberra was known as the Faculty of Military Studies, University of New South Wales, RoyalMilitaryCollege, Duntroon, before becoming UniversityCollege, University of New South Wales, AustralianDefenceForceAcademy in 1986. There was a further name change to UNSW Canberra in 2012. Initially the University provided courses for Army Cadets at Duntroon and then, in 1986 became part of the tri-service Academy teaching Midshipmen and Cadets from the Navy, Army and Air Force. From the outset both military and civilian postgraduate students were enrolled but it was not until 2016 that civilian undergraduate students were able to enter the Engineering courses. When the ADFA campus opened in 1986, teaching was re-located from RMC, RANC and Point Cook to ADFA.
