About the ceremony

The Conferment of Master’s Degrees is an old academic tradition but a fairly new ceremony at Stockholm University. 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.


To be invited to the ceremony it is necessary that you apply for your formal Master’s degree (or equivalent on a Master's level) before a certain date. For details on the coming ceremony plese follow the link below!
