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).

On 11 December, a 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. 

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

Registration / cancelation for the graduation ceremony is completed exclusively via the registration tool, which is open from 25 October to 7 November 2019. 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.

Graduation ceremony assignment

The schedule of the celebrations will be made on receipt of the registrations. Requests for specific dates / times cannot be accomodated. Subsequent cancelations should be sent to promotionsfeier@oec.uzh.ch

Approximately one week prior to their ceremony the graduates receive by mail a personal invitation with the date and time of their ceremony along with tickets for the graduate and a maximum of four registered guests.
