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).

On 9 December 2020 one graduation ceremony will be held in English. When registering you can decide whether you would like to attend the English graduation ceremony or one of the German ones.

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.

Graduation ceremony assignment

After the registration deadline graduates are assigned in groups, based on degree, specialization and language of the ceremony. Details on the graduation ceremony assignment will be published here no later than one week after the closing date for applications. Requests for specific dates / times cannot be accomodated. Subsequent cancelations should be sent to promotionsfeier@oec.uzh.ch
