All graduation ceremonies Humanities faculty online until the end of December

All physical graduation ceremonies have unfortunately been cancelled until the end of December.

For all students who graduated in the academic year 2019-2020, we would have preferred to have organised a graduation ceremony in the autumn. Unfortunately, because of Covid-19, we had to cancel all physical graduation ceremonies until the end of December. 

Formally graduated and then?

Once you’ve received a formal graduation email from our Graduation Office, you can expect another email that contains a link to a form asking you to state whether you will pick up your diploma yourself or it should be sent to you abroad. That way we know what to do with your diploma. What to do depends on your graduation date.

Graduated in 2019-2020
Picking up your diploma

If you graduated before 1 September 2020, your diploma is ready. You can make an appointment to collect your diploma at the Student Information Desk Humanities. Don't forget to bring a valid ID.

Should someone pick up your diploma on your behalf? Send an email to ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl

Have your diploma sent by post

If, due to the current coronavirus situation, you are not in a position or feel comfortable coming to the Student Information Desk Humanities, to pick up your diploma, we can send it to you. In that case, please contact the Exam Secretariat via ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl.

Due to the hustle and bustle at the office, it may take a few weeks before you receive your diploma. 

Do you need your diploma urgently?

In most cases, you can suffice with a graduation statement. You can request this by sending an email to ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl. Do you need the real diploma instead? Send an email to ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl with the subject Urgent: diploma required + your student number. Clearly indicate the deadline and your motivation.
