Each year a number of ceremonies are organised by Karolinska Institutet. Activities include the welcoming of new students, conferring of doctor's degrees, professorial awards and academic prizes.
Karolinska Institutet holds a Conferment ceremony for doctoral students and for honorary and jubilee doctors twice a year. The ceremony takes place in the Blue Hall of Stockholm City Hall at 5 pm and is followed by a banquet in the Golden Hall and dance.
Karolinska Institutet organizes every fall an Installation Ceremony where new professors at KI are presented and academic prizes are delivered.
