Summer closing ceremony for Master's students
At the end of each academic year, Uppsala University in collaboration with Uppsala Student Union, Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students, Pharmaceutical Student Association, Student Union Rindi, Uppsala Business and Economics Students Association, Law Students' Association in Uppsala, as well as representatives for Uppsala’s student nations, organises a summer closing ceremony for Master's students who are completing their studies.
The ceremony, which is usually held in the Grand Auditorium of the University Main Building, includes speeches in English by members of the University Management and student unions, musical entertainment, and light refreshments. There is no cost for attending the ceremony. Please note that no Master's degree certificates will be awarded at the ceremony, and students must actively apply for a degree.
Individual Master's programmes and/or university departments may also arrange graduation events and activities for their students. Students are welcome to partake in both.
The ceremony is held for Master's students in the process of finalising their Master's studies at Uppsala University. Students do not have to have received their degree in order to attend the ceremony as it is not a formal graduation ceremony.
This year the Summer Closing Ceremony for Master's students will be held at 4pm on Wednesday 31 May at Uppsala Castle. If you wish to attend the ceremony, you must register in advance. Please register online through the following website by 20 May:
