Master and Diploma

Having successfully completed all requirements of a Master’s program, you must apply for your degree certificate. It is not awarded automatically. There are two main application procedures, depending on whether you will be awarded your certificate at a presentation ceremony or receive it immediately following the (successful) defense of your thesis. This page provides further information about the application procedures and the dates of the degree presentation ceremonies.
