A degree is evidence that you have acquired a certain level of knowledge and ability as a result of your studies. Once you have finished your studies and want to take your degree, you need to personally apply for this.
The degree certificate shows which degree has been awarded, which courses were included, grades awarded for the courses and on which date they were completed. The degree certificate can be obtained in both Swedish and English. In addition, you will receive a diploma supplement, which is an appendix describing the course and its place in the educational system.
On the Academic Degree Unit’s website, there is information on how to apply for a degree and the rules that apply to different degrees.
