Graduation and pickup moments

Graduation ceremony

Each year, one Bachelor's and one Master's ceremony is being organised. These ceremonies take place in September/October. As soon as the dates of the graduation ceremonies are confirmed, they will be published here.

Invitation to the graduation ceremony
If you have announced that you want to come to the ceremony, you will receive an invitation by email at least five workdays before the ceremony. This will include the exact time and the room where the ceremony will take place. You may bring a maximum of four guests. It is also important that you can identify yourself, so bring a valid ID-certificate with you!

Pickup moments

Are you unable to come to the award ceremony or do you rather pick up your diploma without a ceremony? You can! When you have received a message from the faculty that your diploma is ready to be picked up, you can pick up your diploma during the so-called pickup moments. On the days listed below, a faculty member will be at the desk. The staff member will hand over the diploma to you, provided that you can show a valid ID-certificate.
