As the current measures against the Covid-19 pandemic allow us to plan an entirely in-person graduation, we are planning to offer your BSc graduation ceremony as a live event in Rotterdam.  

All graduates are invited to come to Rotterdam to join us on location.

At this point in time we do not know the exact schedule of the day yet so we would like to ask you to keep this timeslot blocked in your calendar. This timeslot will include arrival, collecting your attire, line-up, the actual ceremony and celebrations afterwards. 

As the current measures against the Covid-19 pandemic allow us to plan an entirely in-person graduation, we are planning to offer your BSc graduation ceremony as a live event in Rotterdam. Thus, online participation will not be possible.  Your friends and family who can’t join us in the Nieuw Luxor can watch the ceremony live from the graduation website. The livestream links will appear shortly before the ceremony.

For questions regarding your degree progress or if you have enough credits to graduate in time for the graduation ceremonies, please contact bachelor3@rsm.nl. 

You need to have graduated by October 21st with 180 EC completed in order to participate in the graduation ceremony. 

Everyone who registered for the BA graduation ceremony could purchase tickets for up to two guests.

Programme

Yes! We are planning a live ceremony in Rotterdam. We invite all graduates able to travel to Rotterdam to join us on location. For graduates and guests who cannot join us in person, the ceremony can be viewed via a live stream.

No. We are planning to offer your graduation ceremony as a live event in Rotterdam. Thus, online participation will not be possible.

After registration closes, we will be able to assess our attendance and put together a more comprehensive schedule of the day. Please check your email and the website for updates.

We order food that will accommodate the majority of students which includes a vegetarian option. If you have any specific concerns, please contact the Graduation Team directly.

For those that have never attended a graduation ceremony, it is a festive celebration of the graduates’ achievements and completion of their programme degree. Faculty/staff and student speeches make up the majority of the programme. Diplomas will be received on stage and there will be an introduction into the alumni network.  Socializing and celebratory drinks with guests and fellow graduates will take place following the ceremony.

Registration

Is your email up-to-date in Studielink?  If you meet the degree credit deadline, you should have received an invitation to the graduation ceremony via Easydus.

Please add the Easydus email address to your verified email list.  Notify us if you need us to resend an email.

A typical graduation ceremony hosts thousands of graduates and guests and relies on careful organization to ensure that everyone has a seat and a place in the running order. This is a significant logistical challenge, and it means that late registration is unfortunately NOT possible under any circumstances. Please make sure you register as soon as you see the first invitation.

There can be no exceptions to this rule. It is not possible to register late even if you missed the registration due to extenuating circumstances, personal difficulties, illness, family emergencies, or any other reason. We are very sorry if this is disappointing, but as a result we try to communicate about your graduation as early as possible – before you even finish your studies – to ensure that you can book your attendance in good time.

If you have made a mistake when filling in your information for the graduation ceremony, you can contact us at the email below with the correct information up to six weeks before the ceremony. The Graduation Team will adjust it for you.

Yes! We strive to accommodate all of our students’ and guests’ needs. Please share your special requirements on the registration form at the time of registration. If you missed this opportunity to reach out, please email us at the email address below.

All tickets with QR code will be sent by email through Easydus the week of your graduation. Guest tickets will also be sent at this time with separate QR codes. You can download and directly forward individual tickets to your guests prior to the ceremony date. Please be sure to check your spam folder if you do not receive your tickets, and contact the Graduation Team at the email below to have them resent.

Guests

At this point in time, we foresee that you will be able to bring guests to the ceremony. Before the registration opens, we will inform you about the number of guests you will be able to bring.

No. Only graduates attending the face-to-face graduation ceremony can order guest tickets. If your friend is not attending, they cannot order guest tickets.

Depending on demand and availability, we might be able to offer additional guest tickets. This will be decided after the registration has closed. Those who registered will be informed about a possible extra ticket order by email. Please be aware that an extra ticket sale is not guaranteed.

If you are on the waiting list, you will receive an email once a ticket becomes available. No email means no available tickets.

While graduation is a celebratory family event, we do not consider it particularly child-friendly due to the ceremonies requiring guests to remain seated for up to two hours at a time in some cases. That being said, children are still welcome to attend. If children do come, those age 2 and under do not need their own ticket for the ceremony as they are expected to sit on an adult’s lap. All children age 3 and over will need their own guest ticket. Children under the age of 18 should not be left unaccompanied at any point whilst in the venue.

Yes! We will always try our hardest to accommodate guests with any special requirements, but it is always helpful if we can make arrangements in advance.

All of our graduation venues are wheelchair accessible. If your guest requires an aisle seat or to be near a doorway for medical reasons, this can also be arranged.

Please indicate your requirements when you register, or otherwise contact us at the email address below at least two weeks before the ceremony so that we can make the best possible arrangements.

You can read more about the accessibility of our graduation venue here:

We can provide VISA letters to students and their families who wish to attend the ceremony. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our team at the email below for further information.

Other questions

You need to have graduated to attend the graduation ceremony. As an outgoing exchange student, you will officially not have graduated, since you will take on extra course load of at least 20 ECTS, for which we will extend your exam programme. In this case, you may attend next year’s graduation ceremony once you have completed your 60 ECTS. 

However, those students who have completed all 60 ECTS of their exam programme before they go on exchange, in other words those of you who do NOT leave one elective open and would have graduated if they would not go on exchange, are allowed to attend the graduation ceremony with the students of their cohort.

You can also do an internship after graduation. You can fill out one of the postponement of active degree forms, if you would like to stay registered after your graduation. In this case you may attend the graduation ceremony, together with the students of your cohort.

Please keep in mind the following:

  • Cost for traveling to Rotterdam, attending the graduation ceremony etc. are at your own expense
  • You will need to register for the graduation ceremony
  • You will not receive your official diploma, since you will not officially graduate yet.

For those of you who are going on exchange, leaving one elective of 6 ECTS open, it will not be possible to attend the graduation ceremony as a ‘graduate’. You are more than welcome to attend the graduation as a guest and pick up your diploma in next year's ceremony. Ticket sale takes place at a later stage.

Also those students who have completed all 60 ECTS of their exam programme and are not planning to attend the ceremony this year, are welcome to attend a future graduation ceremony.

A lot of photos are taken during the Graduation Ceremony. We allow the photographers time to work on these photos for a week. Once the photos are ready you will receive a survey which leads you to the photos.
