Conferral ceremony and ceremonial diploma

Previously, the diplomas were awarded at the conferral ceremonies, together with the ceremonial diploma in Latin. As of 2020, it is only the ceremonial diploma that will be awarded at the conferral ceremony.

The conferral ceremony takes place four times a year, and it is not mandatory to participate. Doctoral candidates are invited to the ceremony by e-mail approximately five weeks prior to the conferral. If you do not attend the ceremony, the ceremonial diploma will be sent to you by post.
