Graduation

'Graduation' basically means that you have completed all parts of an academic programme and, as proof of this, you are awarded the corresponding diploma. For all programmes at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), graduation consists of the same three steps. You must complete each step before you can graduate.

  1. Graduation requirements per programme
  2. Graduation procedures per programme
  3. Terminating enrolment for a programme

 

Step 1: Graduation requirements per EUR programme

Make sure you actually meet all of your programme’s graduation requirements. You can do this by completing the following steps in OSIRIS Student.

Log in to OSIRIS Student, and:

  • In the “Personal details” tab, check that all your personal details are correct; EUR will record these details in official documentation, such as your diploma. If your personal details are incorrect, you need to correct these in Studielink.
  • Generate an overview of your study progress and make sure you have completed all the required components according to our records. To do this, refer to the “Progress” tab in OSIRIS Student, click on the “Study progress overview” tab that appears in the menu in the 'Progress' tab, and then click on “Preview on screen” or “Download file”. If you wish to review the required components of your academic programme, refer to its' Course and Examination Regulations (OER).
    If your study progress overview is not complete, contact your programme’s Exam Administration.


Before you can graduate, the above-mentioned must first be resolved. If you have not discovered any errors in your personal information nor in your study progress overview, please proceed to step 2 directly below.

 

Step 2: Graduation procedures per EUR programme

Once you have established that you have met all of your programme’s graduation requirements (see Step 1), it is time to get started with your programme’s actual graduation procedure. There are two types of graduation procedure at EUR: active conferral and passive conferral.

Active conferral of a degree

Briefly put, this means that EUR uses the information stored in OSIRIS and periodically checks to see which students have met all of the graduation requirements for their programme. This information is then shared with those students. The graduation process is then automatically set in motion for those students, unless a valid reason is brought up to not do so. The intention is that, eventually, all programmes at EUR will use this type of conferral.

If your programme uses active conferral, you will never have to consult this web page, since you will be automatically notified that you have graduated and the graduation process is started automatically. Even so, if you have questions about your graduation contact the ESSC.

 

Passive conferral of a degree

This type of conferral implies that students themselves should keep an eye on whether they have met all of the graduation requirements for their programme. Once all requirements have been met, students themselves then activate their programme’s Student Administration to initiate the final procedure.

To find out more information about the graduation process of your programme, click on your programme in the bachelor or master tables directly below.

3: Terminating enrolment for an EUR programme

After graduation, your enrolment in a programme will not be automatically terminated in Studielink or at the Education Executive Agency (DUO, Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs). You have to do this yourself. Staying enrolled for an unnecessarily long time can cause a number of problems:

-          you have to repay your student public transport chip card;

-          you have to keep paying tuition fees even though you have already finished;

-          you have to repay student grants; and

-          you will run up a study delay even though this is in fact not the case.

You should terminate your enrolment in good time so as to avoid the above-mentioned problems. You can do this by following the two steps outlined below. Terminating your enrolment can even be done on a smartphone and can be completed within just a few minutes.

  1. Click here to terminate your enrolment in Studielink.
    Log in and go to My Programmes”. Click the cross next to the enrolment that you wish to remove. The “Request to terminate enrolment” form will then appear. Fill it in and click Confirm”.
  2. Click here to terminate your enrolment in DUO.

 

After you've completed the above-stated three steps you've definitely graduated. Congratulations!
