Graduation ceremonies start again in September

For all students who graduated in the academic year 2019-2020, we will organize a graduation ceremony in the autumn (assuming corona measures do not become stricter). On the website of your study programme you can see when your graduation ceremony will be.

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 between September 2019 to February 2020

You should have received an email about the ceremony and the link to the form. Have you not received an email (not even in your spam box)? Let us know by emailing ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl with the subject Request link ceremony + your student number.

Picking up your diploma

You can book an appointment to collect your diploma at the Student Information Desk Humanities in the course of September. Don't forget to bring a valid ID. On our Graduation page, we will post updates which study programme is ready for pick-up. Should someone pick up your diploma on your behalf? Send an email to ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl.

Have your diploma sent by post

Should your diploma be sent by post? You will receive notification of shipping in October at the latest.

Graduated between March and June 2020

You should have received an email about the ceremony and the link to the form. Have you not received an email (not even in your spam box)? Let us know by emailing ExamensecretariaatGW@uu.nl with the subject Request link ceremony + your student number.

Picking up your diploma

Unfortunately, your diploma won't be ready in September. 5 days after the graduation ceremony, you can pick up your diploma by booking an appointment at the Student Information Desk Humanities. Please 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 you wish to have your diploma sent by post, you will receive a message from us one month after the graduation ceremony at the latest.

Graduated in July or August 2020

Within a week of receiving your formal graduation email, we will send you an email about the graduation ceremony as well as a link to the graduation form.

No guests

To comply with the corona measures, unfortunately you cannot bring any guests to the ceremony. Instead, we will organize a live stream and record the ceremony. You will receive the appropriate links by email in due time.

Is your diploma urgent?

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.
