When you have completed your studies and want to receive your degree certificate, you must apply for it yourself. A diploma/degree certificate proves that through your studies you have acquired knowledge up to a certain level.

Your diploma/degree certificate states what degree you have been awarded, which courses are included, grades achieved for the courses and on what date the courses were completed. You must have completed all the courses included in your higher education qualification/degree before you apply for your diploma/degree certificate. Only fully completed courses can form part of your qualification.

The diploma/degree certificate is an original document that is issued once. It is written in both Swedish and English. It is accompanied by an appendix that describes the study programme and its place in the education system; this appendix is called a diploma supplement.

The processing time is usually eight weeks after a complete application has been received, unless there are special reasons for a deviation from this. Your graduation date is the date on which your diploma/degree certificate is issued.

The application forms for the various university colleges can be downloaded from this page. There you will also find the Uniarts local System of Qualifications for qualifications/degrees at first-cycle and second-cycle levels. This procedure states the local rules that govern higher education qualifications.
