Conferment of Doctoral Degrees

The Conferment of Doctoral Degrees is the University’s largest ceremonial occasion and is primarily intended for those who have recently completed their postgraduate studies and taken their doctoral exam. The annual ceremony takes place at the University of Gothenburg during the latter part of October.
New doctors from the previous academic year, jubilee doctors and honorary doctors receive their insignia as confirmation of their position at the University. A number of honorary doctorates are also conferred at the ceremony. The appointment of honorary doctors is a way of rewarding individuals, both inside and outside the country, who have made a substantial contribution to research at our University. The importance of educational contributions is demonstrated through the presentation of educational awards, both to individuals and teams.
