Graduation Ceremony

WU offers regularly scheduled graduation ceremonies to help you celebrate the completion of your bachelor’s degree. Participation is voluntary.

COVID-19: Current information for registered graduates

Due to the number of infections and tightened legal measures to reduce the COVID-19 pandemic, all academic graduation ceremonies planned for November 2020 had to be cancelled. Whether academic graduation ceremonies can be held again in the winter semester 2020/21 is currently unclear.

We can offer the following options to graduates who have already signed up for a graduation ceremony:

  • Refund of any fees you may already have paid: If you would like a refund, please send an email with the relevant data (name, address, BIC, IBAN, bank’s name) to  

  • Graduation in absentia (i.e. you receive your WU graduation documents and diploma scroll without a WU ceremony): The excess amount of €65 will be refunded to you. Please send us an email if you would like to graduate in absentia, including the data required for the refund (name address, BIC, IBAN, name of your bank).
