Once you have completed your studies you can apply for your degree certificate. Please note that you will not receive a degree certificate automatically after your studies. You have to apply for the degree certificate by yourself and then your application will be assessed according to national and local degree regulations.

Degree certificate

Your degree certificate declares the courses that are included in your degree, as well as information on comprehension in credits, grades and dates for completion of each course. The degree certificate is bilingual, Swedish and English.

Since December 2017, all degree certificates issued by Linnaeus University are digital. The digital degree certificate is the original and is therefore not printed on paper. The certificate is a PDF, protected and verifiable with an e-signature. When a degree certificate has been issued for you, it will be sent to the e-mail address you have stated in your degree application. You will also receive information on how to handle the digital degree certificate. You can easily e-mail your certificate to potential employers, or upload in portals when applying for work. If you or someone else has questions about the digital degree certificates, please contact degree@lnu.se.

It is also possible for you to share the information in your degree certificate with, for example, a potential employer by using the feature “Share certificate”, which is available through student Ladok, to go to student Ladok click on this link. You can find the feature by clicking “Degrees and certificates” in the menu. When you share your certificate, you will be given a control code and a link to a web site where your degree certificate can be verified. The control code is valid for six months, which makes it possible for you to add it in your resume and share it with multiple people at the same time.

Diploma Supplement

To all degree certificates issued by Swedish universities and university colleges a diploma supplement is attached. This attachment is written in English and contains information about your degree and the Swedish education system. The Diploma Supplement is part of your degree and must be used together with the degree certificate.

Both the degree certificate and the Diploma Supplement are free of charge.
