The europass Diploma Supplement – greater transparency in the higher education sector
The europass Diploma Supplement relates exclusively to the higher education field. The europass Diploma Supplement is an individual document which acts as a supplement to academic certificates issued by institutes of higher education and ensures that clarity is established on a pan-European basis in respect of the nature, level, context, content and status of the course of study in question. Since 2005, students completing their studies have automatically been issued with the document by their university or institute of higher education.
The europass Diploma Supplement contains a detailed description of the course of study and of the higher education qualifications obtained by graduates. It does not, however, replace the original certificate and does not constitute any guarantee that the qualification will be recognised abroad.
