At the Faculty of Humanities it is required that you request your degree certificate in order to be able to graduate.
You can request your degree certificate from the month in which you completed your last examination, or if you are in the final stage of completing your Bachelor's thesis or final project. Even when your final grade is still unknown or not registered in SIS yet, it is possible to apply for the degree certificate.
If you have submitted a request for your degree certificate, you can always decide to cancel the application. If you have any doubts or questions, please contact the Education Desk.
