Graduation Dates

Students who have successfully passed the final examination will be awarded the Master of Science degree. The degree awarded will be noted on the certificate. An appendix to the certificate - signed by the Chairperson of the Examination Board and stating the components of the final examination, the study load and the assessment - will be issued.

As a result of the corona measures, the diploma ceremonies for master programs that were planned on location this academic year have been canceled. We hope that the information about this given in the updates on the website has reached you. 

We do want to celebrate your graduation and are therefore organizing online graduation ceremonies.

If you have registered for the graduation ceremony, you will receive an invitation no later than one month prior to the online ceremony.
You can invite friends and family to this meeting as well.
