Summer 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.

We welcome all students in the process of finalising their Master's studies at Uppsala University. Students do not need to have receive their degree in order to attend the ceremony as it is not a formal graduation ceremony. Please note that no Master's degree certificates will be awarded at the ceremony, students must actively apply for a degree.

The ceremony, which is held in the Grand Auditorium of the University Main Building, includes speeches in English and musical entertainment. After the ceremony there is a reception, non-alcoholic drinks will be served on the ground floor in the hall. The Chancellor's Room (and the connecting rooms) on the upper floor will be open, you'll find portraits depicting kings, cultural figures, professors who have been active at the university over the centuries, and also different photo stations to have your own picture taken with friends and classmates.

  • 16:00 Seats must be taken in the Grand Auditorium, ceremony begins
  • 17:00 Reception with light refreshments
  • 19:00 End of event

There is no cost for attending the ceremony. Last day to register for the event is 7 May. Any questions regarding the ceremony can be sent to Alexandra Abde, Project Manager at the Unit of Student Recruitment.
