Registration for the conferment ceremony


Have you publicly defended your doctoral thesis at Uppsala University? Have you satisfactorily completed all course work and other similar requirements for a doctoral degree? Would you like to have your degree conferred upon you at the University's grand Conferment Ceremony? For the Winter Conferment Ceremony, registration opens on 1 October and closes on 1 November.

One must fulfill the two following requirements to be able to register for the Doctoral Conferment Ceremony on 28 January 2022:

  1. You must have satisfactorily completed all course work and other equivalent requirements for a doctorate degree before 1 November 2021. You must conscientiously comply with this; no exemptions from this requirement can be granted.
  2. You must have satisfactorily defended your thesis in a public disputation at Uppsala University by 26 January 2022 at the latest (No disputations are permitted on 27 and 28 January). Since many candidates defend their theses towards the end of the academic year and since the formalities of including the doctorate in your transcript may take some time, the Vice-Chancellor has declared that the degree may be conferred upon the recipient without presentation of a transcript.
