Leaving Ceremony January 2020
1 min read

At Dalarna University, the Leaving Ceremony is a way to give you, our graduating students, a well-deserved send-off to mark the end of your studies. To be part of the ceremony, you need to be at least registered for or have begun work on your thesis.

The ceremony includes speeches from a number of university representatives and the Student Union. During the ceremony, you will receive a certificate but not your official degree certificate: this is because some students will not have completed their degrees until the absolute end of the semester.

Date and Location

The event will take place on Friday, January 17, 2020. The event venue is Jalas Arena in Falun, a short walk from Campus Falun.

Who can attend?

Programme students who will complete their studies at Dalarna University in the autumn semester 2019. Friends and relatives are also warmly invited to attend the ceremony.
