Diploma and IDS
As proof that you successfully completed your programme, you will receive a diploma as well as an International Diploma Supplement (IDS). The IDS lists, among other things, all components of your programme and your grades. Your average grade is also printed. In order to make our grades understandable for foreign universities, we include Grading Tables. These show the frequency distribution of the grades awarded by our university. They visualise what percentage of all passing grades awarded in the past three years were a 6.0, a 6.5, a 7.0, and so on.
In Spring and in Autumn, your programme will organise a graduation ceremony in which you will receive your diploma. This means that quite some time may pass between your exam date and the ceremony. On Instagram, under the tag #proudUUalum, you can find posts from people who have already graduated (and of course you can use this tag yourself too when graduating!).
Are you unable to make it to the graduation ceremony? In that case, you can make an appointment to pick up your diploma at our Student Information Desk Humanities (5 days after the ceremony).
Approximately 4 weeks after you have graduated, you can request a statement of graduation from the DUO diploma register. This states your programme's name and the graduation date. You can use this declaration as proof of graduation, for example when you register for a subsequent course or apply for a job.
