Karlstad University arranges an academic celebration in September every year. The celebration includes doctoral and honorary doctorate conferment ceremonies, the installation of new professors and presentation of medals and scholarships.
Karlstad University was inaugurated on 22 January 1999. As a young university, we wish to preserve a long-standing academic tradition of ceremonies dating back to the Middle Ages, while commemorating our own history and identity. We have therefore chosen to design our academic celebration to reflect our culture as well as maintain the link to the national and international university tradition.
Conferment Ceremony 2012
The Conferment Ceremony this year will take place on September 21 in Aula Magna at 16.00. The dinner for invited guests will be held at KCCC.
Each autumn and spring there is a degree ceremony at which the names of all degree awardees are announced. The students are presented with a gift token on stage in the assembly hall, Aula Magna. There are music performances and refreshments for the graduating students and their guests. The Conference Administration at Karlstad University can provide more information.
For questions regarding both ceremonies, please contact Conference Administration, tfn +46 (0)54-700 18 06, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
