Your final year at VUB
Are you in your final year of study? Then your diploma is within reach. The last hurdle to take is writing a bachelor’s or master’s thesis. The capstone of your programme, combining research and practical skills. Completing an internship is also a smart move, as it allows you to build up some relevant work experience for your CV.
You are graduating
Have you successfully completed a VUB programme? Then you will officially graduate and receive a diploma as the crowning glory of your work. Congratulations on this important milestone in your life!
Diploma and graduation certificate
You will receive your graduation certificate after the official announcement of your results via secured pdf in your mailbox (a few days after the deliberation). You can use this certificate to apply for a job or for further study. You will receive your original diploma a few months later at your graduation ceremony. You will receive an invitation to this ceremony at your VUB email address.
VUB e-mail address and Office 365
In principle, your VUB e-mail address remains valid for 1 year after you graduate. The other Office programs (such as Teams, Word and Excel) can no longer be used. This licence will be closed as soon as you have graduated.
Your graduation ceremony: a sneak preview
In October of your graduation year, we will see you off, together with your other master’s students, at a solemn ceremony on the Grand Place in Brussels. A moment of recognition for your great achievement: obtaining your diploma. And also a moment where we look ahead to your future. Find out what it was like at the Graduations of the #classof2021.
Graduated, now what?
After obtaining your diploma, you have several options. You can choose to continue studying in order to expand and deepen your knowledge even more. You can also choose to enter the professional world right away.
