Getting your Diploma

You will receive your bachelor diploma at the Graduation Ceremony in October. Check this page for more information (and for confirming your attendance).

If you are not able to attend the Graduation Ceremony, there are two ways to get a hold of your diploma:

  • Authorize someone to pick up your diploma for you.
    Download the authorization form (pdf).
  • Pick up your diploma before you leave the Netherlands.
    Please note, it is not possible to have the diploma printed before the 1st of August. So if you will be leaving the Netherlands before August, the only option is to authorize someone to pick up your diploma.

You can pick up your diploma at the ESSC. It is required to make an appointment for this.

If you will be attending the graduation ceremony, it is not possible to receive your diploma before this date.

In case you need a proof of graduation, before your diploma is issued, please see the section on Statements & Proofs for more information.


Once you have passed all your courses, you can request your diploma. If you graduate during the academic year, you have to un-enrol. If you graduate in summer, then you can request your BA Diploma and not re-enrol. Even though the ceremony is only in October, your diploma will be prepared at the end of August, which means you do not have to be registered as an EUR student anymore.

If you will continue with a Master Programme at EUR, you will have to enrol for this programme.

More information about registration and un-enrolment can be found on the ESSC website.
