Diploma supplement


The Diploma Supplement is an addition to the leaving certificate. It was developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and by Unesco-Cepes. The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve the international transparency and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications. It provides a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the student.
It is free from any value-judgements, equivalence statements or suggestions about recognition.


The Diploma Supplement is issued automatically and free of charge to all graduates of Bachelor and Master programmes.
unibz issues the Diploma Supplement in Italian, German, English and after study conclusion dispatches it by mail.


For students, the Diploma Supplement offers:

  • a diploma that is more readable and easily comparable abroad;
  • a precise description of their academic career and the competencies acquired during the study period;
  • an objective description of their achievements and competencies;
  • easier access to work opportunities or further studies abroad.
