Participation in the Graduation Ceremony 2022


The next Graduation Celebration will be held in the first week of September 2022. Graduates from all RWTH faculties and degree programs (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Diplom, Staatsexamen, Magister, doctorate) who completed their degree in summer semester 2021 and winter semester 2021/22 are invited to attend the 2022 Graduation Celebration.


Participation Requirements

The following graduates are eligible to attend the event:

Bachelor's, Master's, Diplom, State Examination, or Magister students

These students must have taken their last exam for their degree between April 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022, for their graduation to fall within the eligible semesters.

Doctoral Candidates

Doctoral graduates must have fully completed the doctoral degree process in summer semester 2021 or winter semester 2021/22. This means the date they received their doctoral degree certificate must be between April 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022.

Transitioning From Bachelor's to Master's

Bachelor's graduates who completed their last exam in April 2022 – and, therefore, after the official end of winter semester 2021/22) – and can retroactively enroll in a Master's program at RWTH beginning summer semester 2022 are also eligible.

Model Course of Study in Medicine or Dentistry

An exception applies to these courses of study, as these students complete their degrees very early on in the semester. Thus, graduates of winter semester 2021/22 and summer semester 2022 are eligible to participate.
