The new Tampere University will hold its first Ceremonial Conferment of Doctoral Degrees on 12-14 August 2022.

The conferment ceremony highlights the value of and respect for research and education and it is a unique way to celebrate academic achievements. Join in the festivities!

Tampere University’s Ceremonial Conferment of Doctoral Degrees will be organised in August 2022 if the authorities’ guidelines on the pandemic and the University’s own policies allow it. The aim is to make the decision on organising the event by the end of March, but due to the pandemic, changes may still be made after that date. Participants in the conferment events undertake to comply with the pandemic guidelines in force at the time of the event.
