The graduation ceremony will take place on June 30th, 2022, starting at 5 pm. Afterwards the Alumni Service of the university invites you to a graduation party on campus.
All graduates who received a degree (bachelor's, master's, diploma, master's, doctorate) in the academic year 2021/2022 are eligible to participate. This applies to the period July 01, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
The registration for the graduation ceremony will start April 1st, 2022. You have to register in the Alumni-Portal. There you will find the registration form for the graduation ceremony.
The central graduation ceremony is the university's traditional ceremony to bid farewell to the graduates of an academic year. The key note speech is held by a representative from politics or science. We have already welcomed Germany's President Frank Walter Steinmeier and the former French ambassador Philippe Etienne to the university. This year writer Antje Rávik Strubel will speak to the graduates.
In addition, the best students of all faculties are honored and several prizes are awarded for outstanding academic achievements.
A commemorative publication will be compiled for the graduation ceremony, containing the speeches as well as a list of all the year's best graduates and a brief presentation of the award winners. All graduates who have registered for the central graduation ceremony will receive the commemorative publication.
Currently, we assume that the graduation ceremony can take place as an in-person event. The event is planned open-air and the area at the colonnades offers enough space so that the necessary distance can be maintained.
