Higher education qualifications

A higher education qualification is evidence that you have acquired knowledge up to a certain level.

Degree certificate

When you have completed your studies and want to receive your degree certificate, you must apply for the degree yourself. Your degree certificate will show the degree awarded, courses included, grades for the courses and the date on which the courses were completed. The degree certificate is in both Swedish and English.

The menu contains links to more information about how to apply for your degree and the rules applicable for different degrees.

Digital degree certificates

From 5th of November 2018 onwards the university issues digital degree certificates.
