Bachelor: Before Graduation

Step 1: Check Whether You Fulfill the Program Requirements

The requirements for the Bachelor program in English Literature and Linguistics are outlined on the English Department website:

Requirements for the Bachelor Major (120 ECTS)

Requirements for the Bachelor Minor (60 ECTS)

Note:

  • You must fulfill the program requirements of both programs you study (i.e. Major and Minor).
  • The graduation process does not start automatically, i.e. you need to do a so-called self-audit in order to 'kick off' the graduation process (see step 2 for details),

Step 2: Self-Audit in the UZH "Study Progress & Graduation" App

As of the fall semester 2022, students wishing to graduate need to do a so-called self-audit, using the UZH's "Study Progress & Graduation" app (in German: "Studienfortschritt & -abschluss").

In theory, you can start the self-audit as soon as all the modules you need have been graded. In practice, this will be the case toward the end of the corresponding semester - specifically, for students wishing to graduate at the end of the ...

  • fall semester: from c. mid- to late January;
  • the spring semester: from c. mid- to late July.

We strongly recommend that you do the self-audit as early as possible. While it is possible to do the self-audit later than end of January / end of July, late self-audits may lead to delayed diplomas (esp. in the case of the fall semester).

More information on how to register for graduation is available at https://www.students.uzh.ch/en/study/graduation.html and on the website of the UZH Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
