Graduation Ceremony 2016-2017

The graduation date (last working day of the month) is determined by the moment the student gets the grade for his/her last course in the programme. This date is mentioned as such in the diploma. The ceremony in which graduates receive their diploma usually takes place at a later moment. For 2016-2017 the Board of Examiners has scheduled two moments for the diploma ceremony or commencement.

  • Friday, October 14, 2016, from 12.00 hrs.;
  • Friday, March 10, 2017, exact time to be determined.


Graduates will receive their diploma in an individual ceremony, usually to take place in the Academiegebouw, Rapenburg 73. The Board of Examiners will be represented by one of its members and in most cases also by the thesis supervisors. Graduates may be accompanied by family and friends; the faculteitskamer, where this ceremony takes place, can accomodates up to fifteen people. The exact schedule with the moment for the presentation of the diploma to each graduate will be available one to two weeks to before the ceremony. Once it is available graduates will receive an invitation by mail for the ceremony.
