Graduation ceremony and diploma pickup

VU University follows the guidelines of the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) and the Government. VU University has decided that unfortunately there will be limited activities at the campus.

Obtaining your diploma
All graduation ceremonies and pickup moments have been cancelled untill 1 January 2021. It could be possible to send you the diploma by post. After your graduation has been communicated to DUO, it will take a few weeks before your physical diploma is ready. If you have indicated that you wish to receive the diploma by post we will then send you a form to confirm the delivery address. We will offer you a festive event at a later time to celebrate your graduation.

Graduation continues
Graduation continues, it is processed daily. You will receive an e-mail of the Education Office as soon as your grade has been processed. You can also check this in Studielink. Once DUO has received this information, you will see a degree ceremony date under ‘My educational background’.

Proof of graduation
As soon as your grade is processed you can request a graduation statement from the Student Administration on VUnet. You can also download an electronic diploma extract from the DUO diploma registry as soon as DUO has been informed of your graduation date. An electronic diploma extract has the same value as a certified copy of your diploma. An electronic extract from the degree registry is free of charge.
