Graduation ceremony

Graduation date

The date of the examination is always the last working day of the month in which all components of the programme are completed. The form needs the be handed in no later than on the last working day of the month preceding the date of the examination. Please bear in mind that it may well take a month (or more, during the holiday period) from the moment all your grades have been registered in uSis until your diploma and transcript of records are ready. 

Students who graduate on the last working day of August need to hand in the form no later than June 15th. If you are still missing grades at that moment, please fill out the name of the course (or thesis) that you are still working on and the expected date of finishing the course.

Students will receive:

  • Diploma and translated diploma (Dutch and Latin)
  • Transcript of records
  • MA Graduation file with general information


Date of ceremony

Every year there are two moments on which a diploma ceremony is being organised: at the end of February and at the end of September. The ceremony is being held in the Academy Building (Academiegebouw, Rapenburg 67-73). If you cannot attend the ceremony or if your graduation takes place at a different time, you can contact the administration’s office and pick up the diploma there.
