The graduation ceremonies of Xamk are celebrated twice a year: in May and in December.

The graduation ceremony of spring 2018 is held on Thursday, 31st May on three different locations (see below).


The students graduating on 31.5. will receive their degree certificate in the ceremony. Students register to the ceremony at the same time when applying for the degree certificate.

The students, who have graduated earlier this semester are invited to the ceremony as guests. They will not be called to the stage, because they already have had their degree certificates. Registration has ended for the ceremony of May 2018.

The graduates can bring with them a few family members or friends. Remember to register them at the same time when you register yourself.

There is no official dress code at the ceremony, but we recommend wearing something festive. Graduates can buy beforehand a cap related to graduates profession, for example Academic cap for Engineers. You can wear the cap after receiving the degree certificate.

There is a photographer at the ceremony. If you want your photo taken, prepare to queue for some time. Photos will be published in Xamk’s communication channels (1-2 weeks after the ceremony) and you can download your photos from there.
