The doctoral office organises a graduation ceremony twice a year in the Lange Gasse.
All doctoral candidates who have completed their doctoral thesis will receive an invitation. It does not matter whether the dissertation has already been published or not. At the ceremony, you will not be presented with your doctoral certificate, but with a certificate confirming that you have passed the doctoral examination procedure. To receive the doctoral certificate, you must first publish your dissertation. In addition to the presentation of the certificates, the department’s doctoral prizes are awarded at the graduation ceremony.
We will send out the invitations in good time before the graduation ceremony and ask for your size for the gown and beret, which will be made available to you on loan. There is nothing else you need to do for the ceremony. Here you will find pictures of the last graduation ceremonies.
Enjoy an afternoon centred around your graduation with your family, a keynote speech and a champagne reception afterwards.
