Diploma Supplements

What is a Diploma Supplement?

The diploma supplement is a document attached to a higher education certificate which aims to improve international  transparency and facilitate the academic and professional recognition of qualifications.

It was developed by a number of groups within the European Commission, and ties in closely with the Bologna Process objective to create a system of easily readable and comparable documents.
