Please see whether your question is answered below before contacting the graduation team. If the answer is not below, please email graduation@luc.leidenuniv.nl


The graduation walkthrough will be done in small groups. By mid- June you will receive an e-mail to choose a time slot, and therefore if you want to be in a group with your friends, you can opt to choose the same time slot.

Yes, your walkthrough will also include a handing of the diploma by and a photo with the Dean  😊

These photos will be emailed to graduates after the ceremony. 

The gown needs to be rented as that is the official traditional dress that all students must wear during their graduation.

The cap and the tassel however will be yours to keep. Again, this is part of the official graduation dress and so must be worn during the ceremony. 

You will be able to pay for the rent and deposit of the gown online. 

On July 7, you can pick up your cap and gown and have an official portrait picture taken

Unfortunately as it stands, we cannot allow for a student to bring more than 2 guests at this moment. We are very limited to a maximum number on the terrace and we already have large numbers of students and staff who will be at the terrace at every given time.

Should anything change, we will of course update you, however as it currently stands, this will be unlikely. 

All students that cannot make it to the walkthrough ceremony will receive an email by mid-June in which we will ask for your address. We will send a graduation box out to you, including the cap and tassel and a gift from the alumni community.

Please refer to the information on how to receive or get your diploma after graduation

Yes you can! You need to contact the graduation committee for the CLass of 2021- Diva, Tessa or Nandini. You can send them a video of you receiving your "diploma" by a friend, parent or other, and we will feature this towards the en of the online ceremony. 

You are allowed to bring 2 guests. Guests need to meet you at Wijnhaven. You will be required to submit information about your two guests closer to the date. Each guest will have access to WH via a QR code.
