You will only be assigned to a ceremony session if you arranged a speaker to address you during the session (laudatory speech).

Date of graduation
The date of graduation is the last day of the month in which the Board of Examiners has made the decision that you have passed the exam. You can only graduate if your application is completed (all grades are in OSIRIS), and your application form for graduation is handed in at the Master’s Administration Office. Please note: you need to hand in your grades and graduation application form at the Master’s Administration Office one week before the last working day of the month (see below for exact deadlines) in order to be able to graduate that month. Each month you delay your graduation request, will cost you tuition fee.
