Closing ceremony for Master’s students

At the end of each academic year, Uppsala University organises a summer closing ceremony for all Master’s students who are completing their studies. Individual Master’s programmes and/or university departments may also arrange graduation events and activities for their students. Students are of course welcome to take part in both.

Please note that no Master’s degree certificates will be awarded at the ceremony, students must actively apply for a degree.

Information about the ceremony of 2019 will be updated later.
