Participation in the Graduation Ceremony 2020


We kindly invite all RWTH Aachen graduates from the summer semester of 2019 and the winter semester of 2019/20 to the 2020 Graduation Celebration. The event takes place on September 5, 2020.


Participation Requirements

The requirements for participation are as follows:

  • Bachelor’s, Master’s, Diplom, State Examination and Magister students:
    you must have taken your last exam between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020 for your graduation to fall within the eligible semesters.
  • Doctoral graduates from any of the faculties must have fully completed the doctoral degree process in summer semester 2019 or winter semester 2019/20, which means you must have received your doctoral degree certificate between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020.
  • Bachelor graduates who complete their last exam in April 2020 – and therefore after the official end of the 2019/20 winter semester on March 31, 2020 – and can retroactively enroll in a Master’s program at RWTH beginning in the 2020 summer semester are also able to participate.
  • Model degree program Medicine and Dentistry:
    For these courses of study, special regulations apply, as degree completion typically takes place very early in the semester. Thus, graduates in Medicine and Dentistry from the 2019/20 winter semester and the 2020 summer semester are eligible to apply.
