Graduation Ceremony

Friday, 7th of June 2024
Laurea's Leppävaara campus, Vanha Maantie 9, 02650 Espoo


Laurea’s graduation ceremonies will be held in three parts at the Leppävaara campus on June 7, 2024. The Graduation ceremony will honor all students graduating in June 2024, as well as those who have completed their studies since the previous Graduation ceremony. 

Participation in the celebration requires pre-registration from the graduates. The registration link has been published on the student intranet and in the outgoing email message sent to students who have submitted their graduation notification. If you are graduating but haven’t yet submitted your graduation notification, you can still register for the ceremony. Each graduating student can invite two guests to the ceremony. 

The ceremonies are organized by degree programs 

Graduation ceremonies will be held in three parts, celebration 1 starting at 11 a.m., celebration 2 at 2 p.m., and celebration 3 at 5 p.m.

  • Ceremony 1 at 11 a.m. 

    For students graduating in Bachelor of Social Services and Bachelor of Health Care 

  • Ceremony 2 at 2 p.m. 

    For students graduating in Bachelor of Business Administration.

  • Ceremony 3 at 5 p.m. 

    For students graduating in Bachelor of Hospitality Management and in any Master’s degrees programs.

The graduation celebrations can also be watched on Laurea’s YouTube channel.

Dress rehearsal & gowns

Participation in the dress rehearsal is mandatory to all the graduating students. The ceremony will be gone through in dress rehearsal. The graduate will get up on the stage from the right side, shake hands with the principal and walk off the stage from the left side to their assigned seat.

The graduates will get to wear Laurea-gowns. In addition to this, each graduate will get a graduation cap. The graduate gets to loan the gown for the duration of the ceremony and is obligated to return it after. However, the cap is a keepsake for each graduating student and can be taken home.

Arriving at the Leppävaara campus 

Due to limited venue capacity, up to two guests per graduate are kindly requested to arrive at earliest half an hour before the ceremony starts. Guests will be invited to the auditorium after the dress up rehearsal, approximately 15 minutes before the start of the ceremony. 

The campus is located in Espoo, with excellent public transportation connections, at Vanha Maantie 9, 02650 Espoo. More information about directions and parking from Laurea’s website.
