About the diploma

The Master's Graduation Ceremony is a celebration of students that recently have or soon will complete their master's degree. You will not receive your diploma during the ceremony.  The reason for this is that the examination results for the spring semester are not yet ready for many of our candidates.

The diplomas will be issued automatically when all examination results are ready. The candidates that finish their degrees in the spring semester will normally receive their diplomas by mail in September.

Please read more about the diploma on the Faculty web pages.
