To participate in the ceremony in 2023 we invited graduates who defended their master’s thesis in 2023. The invitations were sent on November 6 to the address in the SGH domain and your private address (if you left one for contact). Registration for the event ended on November 30.

IMPORTANT: If you are unable to take part in the event, we would appreciate if you informed us in advance.

Each participant must wear a gown during the ceremony, and we will lend those for your use on the day of the event. Additionally, you must wear a graduation cap which must be purchased before the ceremony (for PLN 40). The sale of birettas started on December 4 in the SGH Bookstore and in the online store. Purchases via the e-shop is possible until December 11 and have the option of personal pickup at the SGH Bookstore, which must be done no later than on the day of the ceremony. For your convenience, the SGH Bookstore will be open also on Saturday, December 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The ceremony will start at noon at the Main Auditorium of our building at al. Niepodległości 162. Please arrive early enough and take your seats in the Main Auditorium until 11.45 a.m.

After your arrival, please: 

  • go to the reception desk with an ID card and sign the list before 11.30 a.m.,
  • buy or collect the cap (for PLN 40 at the SGH Bookstore); 
  • borrow and put on your gown (in the Club Room).

You will have a dedicated seat at the Main Auditorium. Please, take that seat and do not change it on your own, as this will disrupt the flow of alumni receiving congratulation letters from the Rector.

For your convenience, simultaneous translation into English will be provided during the event. Before entering the Main Auditorium you will get headphones for yourself and your English-speaking guests. Please, return the headphones immediately after the official part of the ceremony.

After the official part of the ceremony (which will take around 2,5 hours), we invite you to a toast in the Main Hall. After the toast, please hand back your gowns and sign the relevant document.

The photos will be taken by SGH employees both during the ceremony in the Main Auditorium and in less official situations, and will be available for download a few days after the event.
