Interviews with Graduates


RWTH Aachen University has organized the annual Graduation Celebration for its graduates since 2014. The event is overwhelmingly popular, welcoming around 5,000 participants each year.


10, 9, 8, 7, 6... a countdown counted by everyone in unison. Then the mortarboards fly into the air at the end of the ceremony in the dressage stadium of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein and with them joy, gratitude, relief and so much more.

On this page, we introduce you to some of the graduates whom we had the pleasure of accompanying at their graduation ceremony and who describe the day from their own personal point of view.
