Honorary Doctors

The doctoral conferment ceremony is held each year at the end of May or beginning of June in Lund Cathedral. At the ceremony, degrees are conferred on those who have defended a PhD thesis at Lund University over the previous year. The faculties also honour some outstanding individuals who are presented with honorary doctorates. The new doctors from the Faculty of Science receive a certificate, a ring and a laurel wreath.
