The university is required to actively issue your degree once all curricular components have been completed. When the last result is booked in OSIRIS you will receive a letter from the Study Progress and Diploma (SPD) office that your degree has been issued. This active issuance means that:

  1. No adjustments or additions may be made to the grade list;
  2. You may no longer improve an already sufficient/passing exam result.

For the one year MSc programmes: please be aware that if you have passed all of your courses (including the master thesis trajectory) it will not be possible to do a resit for an already sufficient/passing Block 5 result, even if the formal resit period has not yet taken place. This may also be the case for an already sufficient/passing Block 4 course result, if the improved result is booked in OSIRIS after you have received confirmation that you have been awarded your degree.

Important: Do not unenroll from Studielink until you have received (a confirmation of) your diploma as the diploma can only be issued whilst being an enrolled student. If you deregister too early, you will have to re-enroll.

Under certain predefined conditions and for certain predefined goals, RSM will accommodate students who wish to extend their studies due to an internship by postponing the degree issuance.

Because of COVID-19, it is also possible to postpone the degree if you are extending your studies with a master exchange.

Please refer to the Postponement of active degree issuance document for complete information about the programmes and goal-specific arrangements, as well as to the postponement request forms attached to this article.
