Unfortunately, due to the corona pandemic, RWTH has been forced to cancel the Graduation Celebration 2020, which welcomes up to 5,000 guests. Students graduating in the University’s anniversary year will be able to celebrate this feat on the first weekend of September 2021. On September 4 and 5, 2021, one ceremony each will take place in the Dressage Stadium of the Aachen-Laurensberg Riding Association.

Graduates from all RWTH faculties and degree programs (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Diplom, Staatsexamen, Magister, doctorate) who completed their degree in summer semester 2019, winter semester 2019/2020, summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/2021 are invited to attend the 2021 Graduation Celebration. Students who graduated from the medicine and dentistry courses of study in winter semester 2019/20, summer semester 2020, semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021 are also eligible to attend.

Graduates can choose either the Saturday or Sunday ceremony to celebrate their graduation. We are looking forward to an unforgettable celebration in 2021 with you and your guest(s).
