Degrees and exams

The Board of Examiners is responsible for requests for degree certificates and degree audits. This page provides a brief overview. More information is available via page about Teaching regulations.

Degree audit requests, graduation ceremonies

BSc programme
Degree audits are held monthly.

Students can register for a degree audit via the IDE Service Desk as soon as they fulfil the examination requirements and the proof of the credits they have obtained is shown in the list of their study results kept by student administration SSC-E&SA.

A student may also be put forward for the degree audit by the teaching administration once it has been established that the student has fulfilled all their obligations for the degree audit.
For the complete regulation, see Section 8 of the regulations (OER).

Two graduation ceremonies take place each year.

MSc programmes
The degree audit takes place individually, immediately following the graduation presentation. Prior to this, the examiners have established that the student has fulfilled the requirements for the degree audit and that the proof of the credits they have obtained is shown in the list of their study results kept by student administration SSC-E&SA.

For the complete regulation, see Section 7 of the regulations (TER).

The graduation ceremony takes place immediately following the graduation presentation and the thesis audit.
