Graduation ceremony 2019-2020

Check whether your personal information is registered correctly in Oasis. This way, we can continue to reach you, even after your Ghent University email account has been shut down.

After years of hard work, you have now earned your well-deserved diploma. And we won’t allow that to go unnoticed, because we are proud to be able to call you a Ghent University alumnus.

Even in times of Covid-19, we plan to organise a befitting send-off. Because of these exceptional circumstances, we will actually have 2 graduation ceremonies: a digital one and also a real-life faculty meeting!

Digital celebration

On Friday 9 October 2020 at 20:30, Ghent University will organise a digital event for all newly graduated alumni. Let’s celebrate together with friends and family, each from the safety of our own homes and ‘bubbles’. We promise we will make this a night to remember.

Physical graduation ceremony

Putting on your gown and cap is a unique milestone in your life. Because we would love to see you again, the faculty will organise a real-life, face-to-face gathering. The official faculty graduation ceremony will take place during the weekend of 17-18 October 2020 in the Ufo (Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 33, 9000 Gent). You can find all the scheduled sessions below.


Please register here for the official faculty graduation ceremony. (Deadline: 11 October!)

  • Come alone and register in advance using the link on the invitation. We can only admit people who are registered.
  • Please strictly respect the timing.
  • Bring your facemask; wearing a mask is mandatory.
  • When entering the building you will be asked to disinfect your hands. We provide disinfectant hand gel.
  • Respect the physical distancing (1.5 meters apart).
