Graduating in corona times

Congratulations! After years of dedication, lots of studying and hours of hard work, that well-earned diploma is (almost) yours. Graduating in 2021, however, will be slightly different than what we have been used to.

How and when can I access my results?

Some things never change. As per usual, you can check a complete overview of your exam results through Oasis. The dates have been adjusted and the feedback sessions will be organised differently.

Will there be a graduation ceremony?Visual champagne

Of course! Graduation is an important milestone, which we won’t allow to go unnoticed, even though times are challenging. Because of these exceptional circumstances, we will actually have two graduation ceremonies: we are currently working on both a digital and a real-life gown-and-cap moment!

How and when will I obtain my diploma?

We will send you your diploma by mail as well as digitally. In order to do so, we need both your home and email addresses… Please check whether your personal information is correct!

Welcome, alumni!


Your diploma grants you access to Ghent University’s vast alumni network. That network comes with a great many benefits, ranging from connections to fellow alumni, access to exclusive alumni events to job offerings. So, hurry up and register your name in the alumni database. Although, figuratively speaking, you’ll be closing Ghent University’s doors behind you, our slogan “once part of Ghent University, always part of Ghent University” underscores that we want to maintain a close relationship with all our former students. After all, as an alumnus, you will be an important ambassador for Ghent University!

Bye bye, Ghent University? We prefer: ‘See you later!’

Detailed information about free registration, the international alumni chapters and ambassadorship can be found at the alumni website.
