The bi-annual Commencement Ceremony of graduating University College Students of the class of 2020 will take place on 28 May in TivoliVredenburg.
About the Commencement Ceremony
Commencement literally means ‘beginning’. It is the beginning of the period during which students will meet all of the graduation requirements and graduate. As not all students from the same year will graduate at the same time, we do not jointly celebrate the end of the graduation. Instead, we celebrate the beginning of it.
Some students may take an extra class or finalise their research thesis later. University College Utrecht students are from all over the world and many of them will leave the country at different times.
A Commencement Ceremony consists of academic rituals and practices. Students wear caps and gowns; one of the students is beadle of the day and another is the speaker (valedictorian) on behalf of his/her class.
The programme will follow closer to date.
This event is for invited guests only.
