The usual aim for studies is a university degree. When you have received your degree, you are well equipped for a professional life outside the university. In most cases, your degree will qualify you for studies at a higher level.
After the completion of your studies you have to apply for your degree yourself. Your application will be checked against applicable national and local higher education qualification rules.
The degree certificate includes only approved courses that are fully completed, the number of credits, grade, grading scale, the date for the grade and, where appropriate, other studies that have been accredited. The degree certificate is issued in two languages: Swedish and English.
Enclosed with the Degree Certificate you will automatically and free of charge receive a Diploma Supplement which is a description of where in the Swedish Higher Education System your Degree Certificate is located. The Diploma Supplement is always issued in English.
The Diploma supplement is an annex to a degree certificate. The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve international "transparency" and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates etc). Diploma Supplement is designed to provide a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were purposed and successfully completed by the individual named on the original qualification to which this supplement is appended.
Your Degree Certificate is an original document that is only available in one copy. If your Degree Certificate is lost or destroyed you can get a copy from the university's archive.
