This year, because of the coronavirus pandemic and the government directive on large gatherings, we are unfortunately unable to come together to hold our traditional leaving ceremony. However, despite not being able to meet at a physical location, we would like to invite you, our students, to celebrate online with us so that we can congratulate you and wish you well for the future.
Our online ceremony will include speeches from the University's Vice-Chancellor, the Governor of Dalarna County and the Chairperson of the Student Union.
The online ceremony will take place on June 5, 2020 at 13.00.
If you are in the last semester of your programme at Dalarna University, we will be sending to your home address the folder that we normally hand out at our leaving ceremonies. If you do not receive the folder to your current home address, it is because either you have not included an address in Ladok or you have not updated your address. If you would like to receive the folder, please contact Emma Åhl Persson (see contact information below), and we will do our best to get it to you.
Who can attend?
The Leaving Ceremony is for programme students who have completed or who will be completing their studies at Dalarna University in the spring semester 2020. The reason it is called a Leaving Ceremony and not a Graduation Ceremony is because not all students will not have completed their studies by the end of the semester. Leaving ceremonies are for students completing their programmes.
We know that a number of courses that should have been taught this semester have been moved to next semester, and that this affects many students. However, to ensure that everyone can take part in this Leaving Ceremony, everyone who is registered in the last semester of their programme is invited to attend online. It is important that everyone gets the send-off they deserve and can celebrate with their fellow students regardless of any changes the present situation presents.
Welcome to Dalarna University's Online Leaving Ceremony 2020!
