After completion of the MSc programme the student will receive their diploma. However, graduation requires some planning, starting at least two months before the desired graduation date! It is the student's own responsibility to keep track of all their grades (courses and research projects) and make sure everything is registered correctly in uSis.
The formal certification date, the date printed on the diploma, is the last working day of the month in which a student completes the last study component of the MSc programme (usually colloquium or Thesis Talk). After the certification of the diploma, the formal graduation ceremony can be scheduled on the next available graduation date (usually every 3rd Tuesday of the month, with the exception of July and October). The potential graduation dates are listed in the graduation calendar.
Important notice for graduations in the summer: In the summer, fewer colloquia and Thesis Talks are held. Make sure you complete the attendance requirement in time! Also realise that many staff members go on holiday and to conferences in the summer. Start planning your own colloquium or Thesis Talk well in advance!
