The following still has to be considered:
- attending the ceremony is only possible for those who register in Neptun
- it is not possible to invite relatives or other guests to the graduation ceremony
- those who do not attend the ceremony will receive their certificate as an official document by post
- information regarding the possible obligation to wear a mask during the ceremony will be available later – based on the then current regulations. Wearing a mask and a (white) pair of gloves (while taking the diploma) is strongely advised during the ceremony regardless.

Only those graduate students may participate in the ceremony, who have an immunity certificate.You may choose, in which way you would prefer to receive your diploma:
