Safety measures

When organising the degree ceremonies we take into account the safety measures in force. We will work with the Covid Safe Ticket (CST). You will have to present a Corona certificate via a mobile app at the entrance for verification in order to gain access to the UFO building. More details will follow later via the official invitation.

However, the permitted number of people for a reception and additional safety protocols do not allow us to organise a reception afterwards in safe conditions. Our sincere apologies for this, but in consultation with the faculty office, we thought it’s better to prefer the presence of family and friends, the opportunity to meet fellow students again without restrictions, and the opportunity to take pictures in a gown.

Master's gown and cap

All students have the opportunity to wear a master's gown during the ceremony, a long-established tradition at graduation ceremonies at many universities all over the world. Alle master's gown will be lent free of charge during the duration of the ceremony. You can collect your gown and corresponding stole and cap at the lending counter in the 'Ufo' in the hour before the start of the proclamation. Your identity card will count as a deposit. You will also have the opportunity to purchase the cap. More information will follow in an email.

Location

Ufo-building, Ghent University, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 33, 9000 Gent.
