I have not finished all my courses, can I still participate?
Of course! All students who are registered on their last semester can participate on the graduation day.
Is it okay for family and friends to come?
Yes, family and friends are very welcome to visit both the thesis fair, Xjobbsmässan, and the Graduation ceremony. The Graduation ceremony is held outside so there is no maximum number of people you can invite. Please note that there are no seating.
Will our names be called out on stage?
The scarfs and diplomas are handed out to you by your Programme Manager during the programme activities. At the start of the Graduation ceremony the classes will be called to the stage area one by one. So, your name will not be called on stage but there is an opportunity for your family and friends to see you as your class join the ceremony.
Do I have to pay for the scarf?
There are two types of scarves. A scarf with "JTH" print that you can buy for 50 SEK if you want. If you do not want to buy a scarf, you will receive a simpler scarf (similar to previous years) as a gift from JTH.
What is the dress code?
There is no official dress code for the graduation day, but most students choose a smart casual look.
Will I get a diploma even if I haven't passed all courses yet?
The diploma handed out on the graduation day holds only a symbolic value, it is not your official degree certificate. Even if you have not passed all courses by the graduation day you will still get the diploma. But once you have passed all courses you need to apply for your degree certificate.
