A total of eighteen students were awarded their diplomas in front of a large audience. They received their diplomas for their studies within various religious backgrounds and directions. The event was led by Henk Bakker and Henk van den Belt. Programme director Welmoet Boender spoke on behalf of the Faculty Board.
Each student spoke briefly about his or her thesis or how they had experienced the past years. It was clear to the audience that the students had delved deep into their subject and approached it with great interest and depth. Then all students received a laudatio from their thesis supervisor, after which one by one they signed their diploma.
All in all, there was a lot of personal attention per student resulting in a great meeting.
