Guests to the ceremony

Graduating students are welcome to invite up to three guests to the ceremony and the following reception.

The Diploma, a ceremonial memento to those present

The diploma that graduating masters' students receive during the ceremony is not legal proof of their degree (not to be confused with the degree certificate, sent by mail) but a ceremonial memento of the conferment ceremony. The diploma is given only to those present at the ceremony.

Rehearsal in Aula Magna at 16.15 is obligatory

In order to ensure the proper ceremonial tone for the Conferment of Master’s Degrees, an obligatory rehearsal will be held in Aula Magna at 16.15 that same day. The rehearsal is only for the graduating students. Doors will open for their guests at 17.30.

The ceremony

The conferment ceremony, which is held mostly in Swedish, will start at 18:00. All guests are expected to be seated at 17.45. The ceremony begins and ends with massed standards and contains, in addition to the conferment, speeches, songs and music. The ceremony ends between 19.45 and 20.00, depending on the number of participants, and is followed by a reception in the Gallery in Aula Magna.
