Europass Diploma Supplement
The Europass Diploma Supplement describes the nature, background, level, content and status of the studies completed by the holder of the supplement. It is a personal document providing information on its holder. The supplement also provides information on the higher education institution that awarded the diploma and on the education system of the country in which the diploma was awarded. The Diploma Supplement does not replace the original diploma nor guarantee that the authorities of some other country will formally recognise the original degree. The Europass Diploma Supplement is a document that is intended for international use.
The Diploma Supplement is a document that has been designed jointly by the EU, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.
Where can the Europass Diploma Supplement be obtained?
In Finland, the supplement is issued automatically in conjunction with their diploma to all students graduating from a higher education institution. Under Finnish legislation, higher education institutions have the obligation to provide their students with a diploma supplement intended for international use.
