About the ceremony

The Conferment of Master’s Degrees is an old academic tradition but a fairly new ceremony at Stockholm University. The first was held in 1997. The word promotion (in the Swedish Magisterpromotion) comes from the latin word promovere, which translates to move forward or promote.

During the ceremony the graduates (promovendi) step up onto one side of Aula Magna’s stage and, after having received the diploma, leave by the other side. This used to symbolize that they will now move forward in life, and have the right to teach others. Today it is a memorable occasion to celebrate your Master's degree!

The ceremony is held in the great auditorium of Aula Magna and is followed by a reception with music in the Gallery and Foyer.

The ceremony is broadcast live on su.se/play, and the film can be found on the same page afterwards.
