This year’s doctoral degree conferment ceremony, the University’s ceremonial highlight and the faculties’ most important academic celebration, will break the record for the number of conferees. It is time to celebrate the faculties’ doctors, honorary doctors and jubilee doctors.

In a solemn ceremony at Lund Cathedral, the doctoral students who completed their doctoral studies in the past year and successfully defended their doctoral theses at Lund University will have their degrees conferred. At the ceremony, degrees are also conferred on the faculties’ honorary doctors. Doctors who completed their doctoral degrees 50 years ago become jubilee doctors.

This year there is a record number of conferees:

  • 266 doctors
  • 67 jubilee doctors
  • 15 honorary doctors
