When your doctoral examination is approved by the faculty, you will be invited to a conferral ceremony in the University’s ceremonial hall, the Aula.
- You will receive the letter of invitation about five weeks before the ceremony.
- It is important that you remember to register by the deadline specified in the letter.
- It is, unfortunately, not possible to change the date of conferral. If you are not able to attend, the diploma will be sent to you by registered mail.
