I believe Kirk did graduate as a Lieutenant, in the prime universe he also graduated as a Lieutenant (TOS, "Obsession") and the Star Trek website also notes this that he achieved Ensign rank whilst at the academy in his FIRST year. Looks like accelerated career even in the prime universe.
We only know that the Farragut was his first "deep space" mission. We are not given enough information to know if that was his first assignment.

I'm certain in the real world Lt ranks are given after graduation in certain circumstances, I was actually offered this when applying to the UK Navy for engineering.
The British Royal Navy does not have an Ensign rank, it starts at Lieutenant for officers.
