What can I expect from my Graduation Day?

The ceremony consists of speeches from Senior Staff Members and a student representative. 

A key part of the ceremony as a graduate is walking across the stage in your academic dress and shaking hands with the Presiding Officer. The Presenting Head will announce your name and course. 

Each ceremony lasts about 1 hour. It will be followed by a celebratory drink’s reception lasting around one hour.  Gowns will need to be returned promptly after the drinks reception to allow us to prepare for the next ceremony.

About the venue

The Spreespeicher was designed by architect Friedrich Krause as head of municipal planning for the city of Berlin. After six years of construction work, the granary was opened in 1913. With its huge, hipped roof, brickwork facades and natural stonework, he gave the building the unique face that it still maintains today. Despite much damage during the Second World War, the Spreespeicher was used as a reloading hub for the Wehrmacht until the docks were occupied by the Red Army between 1945 until 1947.

Plans for modern usage were implemented in 2000 and the work was completed in 2001. Using high-quality materials such as granite, shell limestone and clinker bricks from Bunzlau, the building was restored taking the historical monuments into consideration. without losing the essential appearance of the former granary. Today, with over 100 years of history, the Spreespeicher is amid Berlin’s media quarter in the trendy district of Friedrichshain and located on the banks of the Spree.
