Dies academicus


The Dies academicus, which celebrates the anniversary of the University, is the highlight in UZH’s annual calendar of events.

The ceremony is held every year on the last Saturday of April. At the festivities, the University awards honorary doctorates to distinguished personalities, appoints guests of honor, and presents annual awards for outstanding scholarship.

The next Dies academicus will take place on 27 April 2019.
