Information concerning graduation procedure International Studies
If you wish to graduate this summer, please remember to hand in the Graduation form: before 1 June. Please note you can already hand in your form without having received all your final grades.
Due to the corona measures, you can only do this via e-mail:
You also need to upload your thesis in PDF to the Leiden Repository . Uploading your thesis is mandatory. You can login to the Repository via the following page: https://openaccess.leidenuniv.nl/
Without uploading your thesis, the administration cannot issue your diploma.
The graduation ceremony is currently planned for Friday August 28. Due to continuing uncertainties, we may need to adapt the event to meet regulations. This may involve the format of the event, or the number of guests allowed. We may also need to postpone the ceremony – the final decision on this will be taken around June 1. For these reasons, practical information about this event will follow later.
If you hand in your form after 1 June, you are not allowed to participate in the ceremony.
Also, if you do not know who your second Thesis supervisor is, you can leave this space blank.
If you have obtained all your credits (the required 180 credits of the programme), but still need to wait for an extra-curricular internship or minor grade, please indicate this clearly on your Graduation form.
In some cases, you also need to request postponement of graduation. You can do so via the following link Requesting postponement of graduation and fill in the form on the humanities tab.
