When you have completed your studies, you can apply for a degree certificate from the Office of Student Services and Education Administration. The degree certificate proves that you have fulfilled the requirements of your degree.
Staff will assess your application against national and local degree regulations. Generally, the processing time for a degree certificate is eight weeks maximum after your submission of a complete application to the University.
We will email you a PDF copy of your degree certificate to the email address given in your degree certificate application or in Ladok. After this, we will send you a paper-copy certificate to your postal address.
The main text in the degree certificate is Swedish and the sub-text is English. The certificate includes a diploma supplement, which describes your studies and presents information on, for example, programme content. You should present the diploma supplement together with the degree certificate. This is especially important for employment applications and other such purposes outside Sweden.
There is no cost for either the degree certificate or the diploma supplement.
