Attending the Conferment Ceremony for New PhDs Feels Like the Nobel Prize Ceremony

When you have finished your PhD at Uppsala University you are invited to participate in the conferment ceremony in the main university building at Uppsala University. This is a very traditional ceremony, and parts of it is still in Latin. 😳

The link to the film below is taken when the PhD students and the other people in the procession enter the room.

 

Here we go!

 

The feeling during the conferment ceremony is that of the Nobel Prize award. It is indeed very formal, serious and honorable. This year I am attending the ceremony to see when Thomas Lind gets his diploma.
