The Doctoral Degree

When you have completed your doctoral studies, that is, when you have passed the course elements (120 higher education credits) of the programme as well as the public defence (120 higher education credits) of your doctoral thesis, you should apply for a degree certificate.

The programme's doctoral degree is called Doctor of Philosophy in Economics.

Conferment ceremony

When you have been awarded your doctoral degree you will receive an invitation to participate in the University of Gothenburg’s doctoral conferment ceremony.

The conferment is one of the main events at the university, and it is mainly for those who have recently completed their doctoral studies and achieved their doctoral degrees. The ceremony takes place in late October every year.
