Every summer at the end of the academic year Halmstad University hosts a joint ceremony for all graduating students. More information about the ceremony will follow on this page.
Graduation ceremony 2024
Graduation ceremony at Halmstad Arena
On 31 May starting 15.00, the grand joint graduation ceremony for all the graduands who completes their degree programme studies in spring 2024 will take place. The graduation ceremony is a thank you for your years at Halmstad University.
Celebrate at your programme degree assembly
Many programmes have a tradition of meeting up to say good bye and celebrate, before the joint graduation ceremony. In previous years, students and programme directors have chosen to have breakfast, lunch or dinner together or meet under more traditional graduation forms on University premises.
During the programme degree assembly you can, for example, give personal speeches, hand out internal awards or anything else that you would like to highlight. It is you, together with your fellow programme students and your programme director who decide what your programme degree assembly should contain. If you want to know what applies to your programme, you can contact your programme director.
You may borrow a graduation shawl
Students who attend the graduation ceremony may borrow a colour-coded shawl. The colour of the shawl is based on the student overall, which is used during the Nollning/Fresher's week, for example. The shawls are handed out when you walk in to Halmstad Arena and collected again after the ceremony. See what shawl colour your programme has via the link below.Graduation shawl
