The fifth academic conferment ceremony will take place at the University of Lapland on 15-18 May 2019, where master’s degrees, doctor’s degrees, and honorary doctorates are awarded to the participants. Students working as facilitators play a significant role in the proceedings of this academic event. Their task is to support the participants and to provide other assistance during the four days of activity.
To prepare for the event the facilitators are required to attend a course where they learn about the conferment process, the University of Lapland, and the academic tradition. The one-day course is arranged once a month as of October 2018. Together with the ceremony proceedings it is worth two credits as part of the course Contributing to the Universtity Community (VAIK0001). The facilitators represent each of our four faculties, and every student of the University of Lapland is eligible to apply for the position. In the selection process, attention is paid to your previous activity in the academic community and your commitment to it. When applying, please submit a short (up to one page) letter of motivation with your application.
The selection committee consists of representatives for the university's conferment committee and the students’ union. Use the application form behind this link and turn it in by 14 September 2018 at the latest.
