Examination date

The examination date is the date you officially graduate. This date will also appear on your degree certificate. From September 1st 2019 on, the examination date will be the date of your last result, if you apply for your diploma within a month after this date. If you apply for your diploma later, your examination date will be the date you applied for your diploma.

In the tables below you find a column that says 'apply before'. This date is the deadline for sending in your application for your diploma, in order to get your diploma on the ceremony date shown in the next column. If you send in your application after this deadline, you will get your diploma at the next ceremony date.

Graduation ceremony

The dates for graduation ceremonies differ for each programme. If you would like to attend a certain ceremony, please make sure you will complete your application on an examination date at least 7 weeks before the graduation ceremony.
The exact times and locations of the ceremonies will be announced by Diploma Services by regular post about two weeks in advance. You should therefore verify that your most recent home address is listed in Osiris (you can edit this address yourself through Studielink).

Desk-ceremony
Are you unable to attend the graduation? Make an appointment for a desk-ceremony. You can do this only after you’ve received the invitation letter of Diploma Services. It is also possible to authorise someone else to pick up your diploma.

Sending your diploma by post?
Within the Faculty of Social Sciences it is only possible for international students (>200 km travel distance, one-way) to send your diploma by post to your home address. Ask STIP (stip@socsci.ru.nl) for the conditions and procedure.

Due to the coronavirus, the conditions for applying for a diploma by post have been temporarily relaxed. The relaxation relates to the minimum requirement of 200 km one way travel distance. This condition is temporarily canceled. All international students living abroad can now temporarily have their diploma sent to your home address. If this applies to you, inquire about the possibilities at STIP (stip@socsci.ru.nl).

Diplomas in times of corona
Due to the corona measures the graduations will be postponed to a later time or converted to an online event. The study programme informs the graduate candidates about this. You will also hear from your study programme how you can get hold of your diploma, if you are dealing with long term travel restrictions and/or bans.
