A message from Professor Michael Weir AM PhD

  • Dear Endeavour Graduands, Your graduation day is an important milestone in your life... (Click to read more)

    It is both an ending and a beginning, a day to reflect on memories of the past and your dreams for the future. You will graduate with a new academic award to your name. This is a major achievement and confirms that you are qualified in a valuable health science or applied health science field.

    It is the culmination of your years of dedication and hard work towards completion of this award. The experiences you’ve had, the connections you’ve made and the knowledge and skills that you’ve gained with us have equipped you to take your place in an industry that is respected and sought by most Australians.

    The Endeavour College of Natural Health and its alumnus are there to support you on your journey. Endeavour is by far Australia’s largest and most enduring institution in this field.

    As well as the Alumni association, another common tie binding our graduates is their determination to keep their clients’ needs firmly at the centre of their practice. As part of the Endeavour fam,ily you were prepared to understand that the client seeking your help is looking to be heard, respected and treated as a whole person. This is a characteristic that marks our graduates apart and is a focus that is sorely needed as more Australians turn to the natural health industry for the answers they can’t find elsewhere.

    As new dimensions of integrative health practice continue to emerge, there are many career options for you to consider when it comes to using your knowledge to educate or transform the lives of others.

    As you shape your career, I encourage you to retain a thirst for knowledge – nothing will serve you better. Listen to your clients and colleagues, learn from your experiences, read in your field, collaborate with others, further your education, stay abreast of current research, and don’t be afraid to challenge assumptions – particularly your own.

    Remember you will always have a home at Endeavour, so please keep in touch with us through our Alumni association. As well as providing updates on further professional development, there is nothing that pleases us more than celebrating the success of our graduates as they demonstrate the major contributions that they make across the many fields for which their academic awards have qualified them.

    Finally, I want to sincerely congratulate you on the achievement of your graduation. It is an honour to join you today to celebrate with those closest to you. Whatever your dreams are beyond today, I hope the values of lifelong learning, informed reflection, caring for our communities and a holistic approach to care will continue to guide you.

Graduation FAQs

  • My guests have already arranged flights and accommodation. Will I get a refund?

    It depends on who you booked your flights and accommodation with. Most airlines have released communications on the current situation and we suggest reaching out to them directly.

  • Will I still receive my Testamur?

    Most of you will have already received your Testamur as part of the normal College Governance cycle, after conferral of degrees by Academic Council on 21 February 2020.

    At this stage for those students with the status ‘Eligible to Graduate (EG)’ (applied to graduate after 21 Feb 2020), the next Academic Council is scheduled for early to mid-May. Once the Council has conferred the current EG students, Testamurs will be posted out by registered post as usual.

    We will keep you informed of any changes to the next Academic Council date, should this need to be changed. Please email Student.Records@endeavour.edu.au if you have any further questions regarding your academic documentation.

  • How will I find out about any graduation ceremony updates?

    We will email you directly as soon as any updates are available, so please keep an eye on your inbox! Any further enquiries can be sent through to graduation@endeavour.edu.au.
