Quarterly an official and public graduation ceremony is taking place at the university’s auditorium and held by one of the deans of the five founding faculties of GAUSS. He/she is announcing the name as well as the thesis title of all GAUSS doctoral candidates who have successfully passed their doctoral examination in the last months and congratulates them to the completion of their doctoral studies.

  • Due to the large number of graduates and limited space in the auditorium, we ask that you bring only your closest relatives to the auditorium.
