WU offers regularly scheduled graduation ceremonies to help you celebrate the completion of your master’s degree. Participation is voluntary.
All graduation ceremonies for master’s students are held twice a year in Ceremonial Hall 1 in the LC building (Library & Learning Center). Each individual program has a ceremony for its own graduates, to help keep the proceedings personal and intimate. You are very welcome to bring your friends, family, and guests to the ceremony.
Music is provided by the WU Choir or the WU String Quartet.
After the ceremony, you can treat yourself and your guests to a buffet. You can choose from a selection of food and drinks before the event. Your individual choice of food and drinks will be ready on a pre-reserved cocktail table at the end of the ceremony. For more information on catering your event, click here.

Registration for a graduation ceremony is only possible by appointment at the Study Service Center. However, it is also possible for another person to register you for the graduation ceremony (no power of attorney is required).
Registrations for graduation ceremonies are subject to availability and can only be made for the next scheduled ceremony. Unfortunately, we cannot accept advance registrations.
