Who are invited?

We are inviting graduates who obtained their degrees from the Faculty of Science and Engineering in 2022 (undergraduate and postgraduate education, not PhD studies). Your degree application must be registered with The Office of Degree Administration no later than 16 September to guarantee your participation in the November Ceremony. For information about how to apply for a degree, please go here.

As a graduate you are not restricted to a specific Ceremony. If you prefer to attend a future event, please contact us.

You must register to attend the Ceremony and the dinner.

Ceremony 2: graduates gather at 2 pm. The ceremony starts at 5:15 pm.

7-10 pm: Dinner

In the evening there is an optional studentesque dinner at Restaurant Garden in Linköping Concert & Congress Hall, with a current or former Faculty of Science and Engineering student acting as toastmaster. There will be entertainment and speeches by LiU students, staff and alumni.

Cost

Adults: SEK 720 (non-alcoholic drinks: SEK 695)
Children up to 12 years: SEK 300

The price includes the ceremonial toast, one glass of wine for the starter and 1.5 glasses of wine for the main course, coffee/tea and a sweet.

Guests

All graduates who wish to participate will be offered a dinner seat. Our ambition is that every graduate should be able to invite three guests. However, the restaurant has a limited capacity and seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. In your confirmation e-mail we will inform you how many seats we have reserved for you and your guests.

Seating

There will be a seating plan. Graduates will be seated with their families and also adjacent to other graduates from the same programme.

10 pm-1 am: Night-time mingle and dance

Celebrations will continue throughout the night with live music courtesy of student bands. Expect spontaneous dancing, laughter and networking opportunities!

RSVP

A formal invitation will be sent in late October. You then have one week to RSVP via an online form that will be published here. Further information will be available in September.

You have to register to the Ceremony and the dinner separately if you want to participate in both events. Confirmation and payment instructions will be sent to the e-mail address that is registered with you in Ladok.

If you would like to cancel your dinner reservation, you may do so until 17 November. Cancellations beyond this date will not be eligible for a refund.
