This year’s Conferment of Doctoral Degrees was held 25 October. Twenty-one of the new Doctors were from Faculty of Science, and their doctorates were conferred by Professor Kristina ‘Snuttan’ Sundell.
The Conferment of Doctoral Degrees is the University’s largest ceremonial occasion and is primarily intended for those who have recently obtained their doctoral degrees.
New Doctors from the previous academic year, Jubilee Doctors and Honorary Doctors receive their insignia as confirmation of their position at the University. The insignia awarded include diplomas for all new Doctors, doctoral rings, hats and laurel wreaths.
