Joint graduation ceremonies are managed by the Student Affair Department of RUK (Doctoral Studies Office) on the basis of data from faculties and take place twice a year - in May and November. Independent graduations are provided by the relevant faculty once or twice a year, depending on the number of graduates.

The graduate will receive information on the course of the ceremonial handing over of doctoral diplomas in time in writing by e-mail from the Department for PhD Study.

The Diploma Supplement is issued in accordance with Section 57 of Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education Institutions, and the Rector's Directive No. 34/2019, centrally as a single output from the CU Information System. It has been compiled according to the model developed by the European Commission, the European Council and UNESCO / CEPES and on the basis of practical experience gained from the recommendations of universities, which have been developing the supplement for several years. It describes the nature, level, content, context and status of the type of study that was successfully completed and which resulted in the acquisition of a qualification. The appendix suitably complements the basic qualification document. It can be used for national and international purposes to facilitate academic and professional recognition and mobility. It is conceived as a factual document that does not assess the value of education and does not provide an opinion on its equivalence. The Diploma Supplement is issued as a bilingual document (Czech-English), automatically and free of charge to all graduates.
