Closing ceremonies and graduation events

At the end of each academic year there is a closing ceremony for Master’s students who are completing their studies. Individual programmes and departments or faculties may also arrange graduation events.

Closing ceremony for international Master’s students

The 2023 ceremony took place on 1 June from 18:00-19:00 in the University Main Building in Uppsala. The ceremony is held in English.

Welcome to the annual Closing Ceremony for International Master’s Students. This is an opportunity for us to say thank you for attending Uppsala University and wish you the best for the future.

This closing ceremony is for all final year students attending any international Master's programme at Uppsala University.

Graduation events for individual programmes

Individual programmes, departments or faculties may also arrange graduation events and activities for their students, for both Bachelor's level students and Master's level students. Contact your department to hear what applies to you.

Remember to apply for a degree

Please note that no degree certificates are awarded via these ceremonies, as they are not formal graduation ceremonies. You must actively apply for a degree to receive your certificate.
