Additional regulations apply to our academic commencements during COVID-19, :

  • Each graduate may bring up to 5 people (including children age 0+) - and for the Faculty of Medicine graduation up to 3 people (including children age 0+) to attend the ceremony. For organizational reasons, we would like to ask you to use the field "remarks" in the online registration form to inform us about the number of guests coming. After registering, you will receive an e-mail with additional information regarding guest registration. In order to adhere to regulations on-site, each guest must register in person. In addition to first and last names, we also need to know whether or not those persons live in the same household as the graduate. Each person will be assigned seat; you may not switch seats with anyone else. Those not registered by name will not be admitted to the ceremony.

  • Please maintain a distance of 1 meter between you and other persons.

  • When inside, wear a face mask at all times up until you are in your designated seat

  • Our on-site photographer will take individual portrait photos (but without a graduation cap); unfortunately group photos and family photos cannot be taken at this time.

  • The champagne reception will unfortunately be unavailable at this time.

  • Restrictions on stage: Unfortunately we cannot hand over the graduation cap; shaking hands with the Vice-Rector, Dean, and other official university representatives is also not possible at this time.

  • Additionally, we must ask all visitors to leave the venue in the building immediately following the graduation ceremony.
