Farewell Ceremonies

During the academic year, Luleå University of Technology and the Student Unions organize farewell celebrations for the students who have finished or are about to finish their studies.

We would like to thank students for spending the duration of their studies with us and give them the opportunity to celebrate the completion their studies at the university together with their classmates and relatives.


The farewell ceremonies take place on three occasions on campus in Luleå. The technical programmes have their ceremony, "Av4ningen," in November. Programmes belonging to the Humanities have their ceremony, "Islossningen," in either January or May.

The event begins with a ceremony during the daytime and ends with an exclusive banquet that stretches well into the evening. The ceremony provides a combination of music and speeches where the students are called to the stage to receive a diploma and LTU pin. It is an occasion for you to celebrate the completion of your studies in a festive atmosphere together with classmates and family members, as well as a chance for the university and the student unions to thank you for choosing Luleå University of Technology.
