Graduation procedure Master
Have you nearly completed your Master and is graduation on your mind? Fill in your graduation form no later than on the last working day of the month preceding the date of the exam.
The graduation date is always the last working day of the month in which all components of the programme are completed. The form needs to be handed in no later than on the last working day of the month preceding the date of the exam. If you have completed all components, but you are awaiting your grade for one or more of those, please specify so on the form for each component. Note that the title and the mark of your Master thesis should be handed in two weeks in advance of your graduation date.
Students who graduate on the last working day of August need to hand in the form no later than July 1st. If you have completed all components, but you are awaiting your grade for one or more of those, please specify so on the form for each component. Note that all the results should be available in uSis by the 31st of August 16:00 hours.
In the Student Repository, Leiden University programmes are building an online archive that makes Bachelor and Master theses easily searchable and publicly available (if desired). This is also a useful tool for future graduates. Uploading your thesis to the student repository is part of the graduation procedure. Please note that you will have to upload the final and approved version (in PDF) of your thesis yourself. The thesis itself can only be made publicly available if the student and the supervisor have given their consent. If one of the parties does not agree with publication, your thesis stays under embargo. Do not forget to fill out the consent form and hand it in to the Secretary’s Office. For more information and an FAQ, please see the Student Repository Website.
Please note that the repository accepts only one upload per student. Consequent revised versions will therefore not be accepted. The thesis grade can only be registered after a copy of the thesis has been uploaded into the Repository.
Follow the steps described in the Graduation Form Master Exam. Hand in the filled in form together with the required supplements at the Secretary's Office of your programme. In the form you will also find more information about deregistration.
