Estonian Academy of Music and Theater graduation ceremony 2020

The 2020 graduation ceremony of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater will take place on Saturday, July 18 at 16:00 at the Great Hall of EAMT. The ceremony will also mark the end of the jubilee year of the academy.

The health crisis has, fortunately, not affected graduation numbers. 86 bachelor's, 85 master's and four doctoral diplomas will be awarded at the ceremony, which corresponds to the average level of recent years. The 2020 graduation ceremony will take place without the EAMT symphony orchestra. However, this will not diminish the festive significance of the concert, which will feature many of our gifted graduates.

• At the event, we must follow the government's instructions, which stipulate that public events taking place from 15.07.2020 still need to adhere to the 50% occupancy requirement indoors.

• Admission to the graduation ceremony event will be by invitation only. Registered graduates, faculty and staff, will receive a ticket with a designated seat by email.

• The concert programme and webcast link can be found here: https://emtasaalid.ee/uritused/emta-2020-aasta-lopetajate-kontsert-aktus/. We shall also share information about the live broadcast on Facebook.

At the end of the graduation ceremony, participants are asked to move outdoors through the lobby and main entrance of the building. There will be no congratulating of graduates by friends and relatives indoors. Weather permitting, group photos with fellow students and teachers may be taken outdoors afterwards.

From June 1, the main building of the academy will be open daily from 9:00 to 21:00. The building can be accessed only through the main entrance with a personalised magnetic card. For the time being, the door remains closed to guests and access to the building is only possible by prior arrangement.

The EAMT library is open from June 1 (Mon – Fri 9–19, Sat 10–15) and it is possible to return items as well as borrow new ones. The computer class is still closed, but it is possible to book computer access for an hour. To enter the library, the guest needs to call the library number at the door. More detailed information about the library's activities and security arrangements can soon be found on the library's webpage.

In subjects where the content and learning styles allow, teaching continues from a distance. However, in specialties and subjects where distance learning is difficult or impossible, a limited number of individual and group lessons are scheduled. All safety rules and hygiene requirements are followed. Maximum of 10 people are allowed to be in the same room at once. The rooms are ventilated and cleaned systematically.

There will be no public events at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre in June.
