Rules and recommendations

Graduations are now allowed to take place without any limitations regarding the number of persons present.

Your university will provide you with the specific organisational guidelines regarding your graduation.

If the graduation ceremony gets cancelled, diplomas are generally awarded through the study department.

The same rule applies to matriculations or other academic ceremonies.

For more information on graduations and diplomas, see the faculty's/university's website or contact the study department.
