If there is no official degree ceremony on your graduation day, you can collect your degree certificate from the Student Service if you’re a Helsinki student and from the Study Office in Vaasa.  However, if you wish to participate in the next official degree ceremony. In this case please register your attendance (invitation and instructions will be sent to your e-mail) and hand in your degree certificate by the latest a week before to the Student Sevice (Helsinki)/Study Office (Vaasa). The degree ceremonies are currently organised as virtual events due to covid 19.

The Solemn Conferment of Master’s Degrees is arranged in November each year in Helsinki. All students from both campuses that have been awarded the Master’s Degree during the year are invited. Read more about the festivities.

Please address questions about the graduation dates or the degree ceremonies to studycounsellor-hki@hanken.fi or studycounsellor-vaasa@hanken.fi.
