You may apply for graduation when you have passed all courses and theses. Please read all information on this website carefully, before you start the online application.
1 ec is reserved for colloquium credits, this credit point will be awarded if students have shown to have attended colloquia. A colloquium is a public lecture or thesis presentation at UvA’s Psychology Department. Students should attend 10 lectures; 5 of them should be thesis presentations, 5 should be lectures.
If all 10 credits are registered please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get the 1 EC awarded. This can also be arranged at the Student Desk (1.04).
The graduation date is date of your final credit in SiS with which you have met all requirements for graduation or the date of your graduation request (which ever is latests). This date will appear on your diploma. You can graduate every month.
The graduation ceremony will take place at least six weeks after the graduation date. Ceremonies are held each month except for July, August and December. The month in which the graduation ceremony takes place does not influence the graduation date on your diploma. The graduation ceremony is individual, it takes about 15 minutes. At the ceremony you will receive your diploma and one of your supervisors will make a speech. You do not have to present or defend your work at the ceremony.
You do not have to apply for an academic distinction yourself. This is calculated for every student. Please see the lemma in the AZ-list for the current rules on academic distinctions.
If your graduation request is officially accepted, you can ask for a statement to proof that you have graduated and that your diploma will be awarded within due time. You can use this statement e.g. for job applications, as long as you have not received your degree certificate.
Upon graduation, you will receive a Master’s degree certificate (Diploma). It is stated in English and Dutch. You will also receive a diploma supplement in English, stating all your grades and an extensive description of the programme, requirements, study goals etc.
Please go through the following steps:
Please note that organisations like ‘OV jaarkaart B.V.’ and the ‘Informatie Beheer Groep’ are not notified by us, you will have to inform them about your de-enrollment yourself. It is important to remember that you have to hand in your ‘OV-chipkaart’ once you are not enrolled anymore.
Students and staff of our Master’s programme are very interested to hear what kind of jobs our alumni have found after the graduation, if you could give us any updates about your career moves (at email@example.com ), it would be much appreciated.
