Degree Certificate - Apply this way


Your Degree Certificate is issued when your application is shown as complete. We kindly ask you to note that the Degree Certificate will be sent 1-2 weeks later from the Office of Degrees. This is due to the compulsory union fee, controlled by the Student Union, before your Degree Certificate can be sent to you. The Student Union office and the office of Degrees is closed during the summer. If your Degree Certificate is issued the week before the summer closure it will be sent to you in the end of August.
