FOR Doreen Canoy, graduating with her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology will be all the sweeter today as she shares the stage with daughter Amy Stenhouse.

Doreen, 48, and Amy, 20, will both be taking to the stage this afternoon as CQUniversity graduates celebrate the end of their degrees, diplomas or certificates.

"I'm very excited; it's been a long road. I did it three years part-time, it's two years full-time, and the undergrad was four, which I did in six," Doreen said.

"When I started I did STEPS before I went on to do my undergrad and that was 2004, so Amy was grade four."

Amy, who is leaving with a Certificate III in Business, said it would be nice to have her mum there.

Doreen said while more study was "definitely" on the radar for Amy, she was not committing to anything.

"I'll never say never - but definitely not next year," she said.
