The 2022 Diploma Ceremony will take place on Sunday 23 October in the Grand Auditorium in The University Main Building. The ceremony includes speeches, music and a handout of diplomas. After the ceremony you and your guests are invited to a reception with drinks and snacks in the faculty rooms. The ceremony is held in English and will take approximately 1,5 hours.

To be able to get the diploma, your degree certificate (examensbevis) must have been issued by the deadline for registration. Please note that the Graduation Office has a long turnaround time, ranging up to three months. We advice you to apply for your degree as soon as possible. If you do not have your degree certificate issued on time, you are welcome to attend the next ceremony.

The certificate is the actual legal document confirming your graduation. The Diploma you'll receive at the Ceremony is a way for us to show our appreciation.  


Registration for the ceremony opens 15 August. Last day to register is 25 September.


Due to limited space, the number of guests during the reception must be limited to two guests per graduate. If you wish to bring more guests, please indicate this in the registration form. You may bring additional guests to the ceremony.

Dress code for graduates is dark suit, dress, skirt or trouser suit.
