Speaker at Specialefestivalen

Have you just sweated over the final details of your Thesis?

Or do you sometimes think back to last year when you were working hard to bring your Thesis together? Give your hard work an afterlife and present your Thesis to the world on stage in front of an engaged and interested audience.

Be considered by signing up below and have the opportunity to be part of the 75 Theses at Specialefestivalen 2023.

We select the theses based on their originality, applicability and thought-provoking topics. You will receive a response to your application no later than September 8th. We have now extended the deadline, so grab your last chance to present!

Here you will receive an invitation to the speaker school program, where you will be prepared to communicate and present your knowledge in front of an audience. All presentations at the festival will be recorded and filmed - giving you the opportunity to get in closer contact with a profession.

Bring your Thesis to life

Create new community across universities and disciplines. Make new connections to an organization or other students.

The core vision of the Thesis Festival is to create a foundation for knowledge to be shared and celebrated and to give you the opportunity to communicate the value of it.  

Public Speaking Course

As a graduate, you need the best conditions to communicate your specialty in a present and interesting way. In collaboration with the speech school Røst, the Youth Office is therefore organizing a speech school course for you as a graduate prior to the festival. At the speaker schools, you have the opportunity to get to know other graduates while testing and developing your own communication skills.

The speaker school is facilitated by Røst, who, with a wealth of projects under their belt, are experts in preparing young speakers to communicate complex knowledge to a general audience. The course takes 2 days and is held a few weeks before the festival.

As a selected presenter you will receive an exclusive invitation and will have the opportunity to choose between September 13, 14 or 15 to take the Speaker School and receive group presentation feedback in week 39.

Register your Thesis

We have closed for registrations to present Thesis, but we hope to give you the opportunity again next year.

In the meantime, we hope you will attend this year's Thesis Festival and hear all the many exciting thesis presentations. Sign up here.
