Diploma Ceremony

The Diploma Ceremony is arranged every autumn to celebrate the graduating students of the Faculty of Social Sciences who have received their degrees. The 2020 Diploma Ceremony will take place on Saturday 24 October in the Grand Auditorium at the University Main Building.

About the ceremony

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.


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 state this in the registration. You can bring more guests to the ceremony than to the reception. Wheather you can bring more guests to the reception or not will be announced once the registration deadline has passed.

Degree certificate required for participation

To be able to attend the ceremony, you must have your graduation certificate (examensbevis) 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 the certificate as soon as possible. If you do not have your degree issued on time, you are welcome to attend the next ceremony.


Registration for the ceremony opens in middle of August. Last day to register is 30 September.
