Procedure for the Graduation Ceremony and Graduation Oath


When is the graduation ceremony organized?

The graduation ceremony is organized three times a year – usually in April, September, and November – after the state exams have been finalized. The dates of the graduation ceremonies are available in the Student Information System (SIS) .You will be notified of the exact date and time of your graduation ceremony by the Student Administration Office approximately 1 month before the date of the ceremony.


If you cannot attend the ceremony at the given date – for any reason – you can contact the Student Administration Office via e-mail and arrange an alternative way of getting your diploma.

Where is the graduation ceremony held?

All of the Bachelor’s graduation ceremonies are held in the Hall of the ‘House for the Professed’ (Profesni dum) of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (Malostranske namesti 25). The capacity of the hall is limited so we recommend inviting no more than 5 guests per one graduate.


All of the Master’s and Doctoral graduation ceremonies take place in the Great Hall of Karolinum (Ovocny trh 5). The capacity of this hall is no longer limited in regards to the number of allowed guests. When attending your graduation ceremony, you are expected to dress formally – i.e. formal suits, dresses, etc. The ceremony follows strict rules and invited guests are expected to follow them accordingly so they do not disturb the ceremony.

Getting the diploma without attendance at the graduation ceremony

If you cannot attend the ceremony at the given date – for any reason – you can contact the Student Administration Office via . You have two options: 1) either you attend the ceremony on an alternative date or 2) you pick up the diploma in person. Please, keep in mind that your diploma will be ready to be picked up at the Student Administration Office only after the intended graduation ceremony date.


To get the diploma, you need to visit the Documents, Registers and Recognition of Foreign Degrees Office where your signature into relevant registry is necessary. We suggest you make an appointment with Mgr.Vendula Kubatova before visiting the office. There, you will receive a confirmation which you need to bring to the Faculty’s Student Administration Office. After receiving the confirmation, the Student Administration Office will give you your diploma.


If you cannot complete all of these steps by yourself we recommend that you issue a written and notarized power of attorney to another person who can complete the process described above for you. Please, keep in mind that they must follow all of the abovementioned steps.
