Registering for the 2023 Graduation Celebration


The 2023 Graduation Celebration will take place on September 2, 2023. 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 2022/23 are invited to attend the Graduation Celebration.


Participation Requirements in 2023

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, 2022, and March 31, 2023, for their graduation to fall within the eligible semesters.

Doctoral Candidates

Doctoral graduates must have fully completed the doctoral degree process in summer semester 2022 or winter semester 2022/23. This means the date they received their doctoral degree certificate must be between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2023.

Transitioning From Bachelor's to Master's

Bachelor's graduates who completed their last exam in April 2023 – and, therefore, after the official end of winter semester 2022/23) – and can retroactively enroll in a Master's program at RWTH beginning summer semester 2023 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 2022/23 and summer semester 2023 are eligible to participate.
