Diploma Supplement

What is the Diploma Supplement? 


The Diploma Supplement (DS) is a document attached to a higher education diploma aiming at improving international ‘transparency' and at facilitating the academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates etc.). It is designed to provide a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were successfully completed by the individual named on the original qualification to which this supplement is appended. It should be free from any value-judgements, equivalence statements or suggestions about recognition. It is a flexible non-prescriptive tool which is designed to save time, money and workload. It is designed to be adaptable for local needs. 

The Diploma Supplement isdesigned by national institutions according to a template that has been developed by a Joint European Commission - Council of Europe - UNESCO working party that tested and refined it. 
Diploma Supplement is being issued in a widely spoken European Language ( in English ), given “automatically” and “free of charge” to every graduation since 2005-2006 academic year.
