Diploma

A diploma is issued to students who have completed and passed a study programme leading to a degree, a vocational education or the 1-year programme in Educational Theory and Practice.

A diploma is automatically issued to students who have completed and passed a Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s Degree, a Doctoral Degree, a vocational education or the 1-year Programme in Educational Theory and Practice, in accordance with the nominal length of the programme.

  • The diploma is sent to the registered semester address.
  • Please take good care of your original diploma. The diploma is normally issued only once.

When can I expect to receive my diploma?

The diploma is issued once the last examination result is announced and published in Studentweb.

  • If you are completing your degree in the spring semester, you shall receive the diploma by 1 July. 
  • If you complete your study programme in accordance with the nominal progress of study, you will automatically receive a diploma from the university college.
