Doctoral Awards Ceremony 2021

Date: 18 November 2021

​​​​​​​Welcome to Doctoral Awards Ceremony

This year’s doctoral degree awards ceremony will take place on 18 November and 19 November 2021 at NTNU, Gløshaugen, in Trondheim.

  • Ceremony 18.11.21, time 12.00 noon – Disputes 1.7. – 31.12.20 ​​​​​​​
  • Ceremony 19.11.21, time 12.00 noon – Disputes 1.1. – 30.06.21

The doctoral degree awards ceremony is a formal event with speeches, music, and the award of diplomas to the new doctoral graduates.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, we would like to get an idea of how many people can participate in the ceremony in Trondheim. Under the current rules for preventing infection, only doctors will be able to participate in the ceremony. If these rules are eased later in the autumn, it will be possible to invite up to two guests each to the event. 

The ceremony will be streamed so that doctors, colleagues, family, and friends who cannot come to Trondheim also get a glimpse.

An official invitation to the doctoral degree awards ceremony will be sent to you at the beginning of October.
