Graduation ceremony


The graduation ceremony at the Lapland UAS takes place twice a year, in May and December.

If you are graduating or have graduated after the last graduation ceremony and wish to take part in the ceremony, it is essential for you to enrol beforehand, because each graduate has a named seat on the stage. If you have already graduated you will get an invitation to the ceremony by post and therefore please remember to keep your address updated in the Winha interface. If you are graduating you can ask the invitation from the Student Affairs’ Office of your educational unit.

The ceremony is common to all graduates of Lapland UAS. In the ceremony you will get your diploma and rose. There will also be other programme in the ceremony.
