For a promovendi attending the Conferment Ceremony alone (solo), the participation fee is 285 euros. It is also possible to attend the Conferment Ceremony with a companion (avec), in which case the participation fee is 2 x 285 euros, a total of 570 euros. If both are promovendi (going to be conferred), each participant pays the solo fee. All promovendi must register themselves separately.
The Conferment Ceremony is a unique kind of celebration. As a multi-day event, it is an unforgettable way to honour the completed degree and close a chapter in one’s life. The participation fees cover less than half of the total costs of organizing the ceremony. The Faculty supports the tradition with a considerable portion of the event's expenses.
Participating in the full Conferment as promovendi includes the following:
Participating in the Conferment Act is free for companions. The Companion's participation fee therefore includes:
Other options: Absens or participating only in the Conferment Act and rehearsal
It is also possible to only take part in the Conferement Act and its rehearsal, in which case the participation fee is 100 euros solo or with a companion. The fee also includes the Matricula.
Furthermore, it is possible to take part while being absent (absens), in which case the promovendus will have their name and information entered in the Matricula as well as the right to wear the insignia of their academic degree. The participation fee is 100 euros for those, who are participating while being absent. The fee also includes the Matricula.
Please note that signing up is done in two parts, both of which are obligatory.
You are eligible to take part in the Conferment Ceremony of 2023 as a promovendus if you have graduated from the University of Helsinki from the Faculty of Law with a Doctorate no later than on the 23rd of April 2023.
Traditionally the promovendus has invited a Companion to accompany them throughout the festivities. Registering both at the same time is easier, but it's also possible to register the avec separately (by the same deadline).
Registration for the doctoral promovendi and their companions is possible until April 30, 2023.
Registration is binding and the payment will be made immediately. By registering, you agree to the cancellation policy for the event. Payment can be made by credit card, phone (MobilePay, Siirto) or via Finnish banks' online payment service.
You can cancel your participation in the Conferment until May 12, 2023 so that your right to participate in a conferment remains in case you would like to take part in a future occasion. The deadline is due to the printing of the Matricula - a name can only be printed there once. We do not require a reason for cancellation. A handling fee of EUR 50 is charged for refunds. In case of cancellations contact email@example.com.
