All graduation ceremonies and pickup moments are cancelled untill 1 June. We don’t know yet what the situation will be after 1 June. As soon as we have additional information we will publish it on this webpage.

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.
