Graduation Ceremony

We celebrate your degrees and welcome you as new alumni of the Faculty: Twice a year (May/June and December), graduation ceremonies for all Bachelor-, Master- and Doctoral graduates who have successfully completed their degrees are held.

Dates and assignment

The next ceremonies take place in the auditorium of the main building of the University on 5 and 12 December 2018 (from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. each).

Graduates are assigned to a ceremony in groups, based on degree and specialization.

The ceremonies for graduates from the Master's and Doctoral programs are scheduled for 12 December 2018. Whether you will be assigned to the group at 5:00 p.m. or 6:45 p.m. depends on the number of registrations. That is why we can only assign you to a group after the registration deadline.

Graduates from the Bachelor's programs will also be assigned to a graduation ceremony after the registration deadline.

Details on the graduation ceremony assignment will be published here at the latest one week after registration has closed. Given the size of the event we ask for your understanding that we can unfortunately not accommodate requests for specific dates/times.

Invitations

Invitees are all graduates who have registered for the final degree and whose degree conferral date takes place during the six months prior to the graduation ceremony.

You will receive an invitation with all information about the ceremonies and registration on the first day of the registration period via e-mail only to your university e-mail address (...@uzh.ch).

Please note that the graduation ceremonies will be held in German.

Guests

In order to allow all graduates to invite guests, the maximum number of guests is limited to four. Two of them will be seated in the auditorium, while the other two can watch a broadcast of the ceremony in a separate room. Unfortunately, no more than four tickets can be made available.

All ticketed guests are cordially invited to an "apéro" after the ceremonies.

Registration/Cancelation

You can register for/cancel your presence at the ceremony via our registration tool, which will be open from 26 October to 8 November 2018. It is not possible to register after these dates.

Important: Your registration will not be valid until you have received an automatically generated e-mail confirmation immediately after having saved your data.

Approximately one week prior to your ceremony you will receive by mail a personal invitation with the date and time of your ceremony along with tickets for yourself and up to four registered guests.

We are looking forward to celebrating your degree together with you and your guests.
