11.3.3.
Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement is a supplementary report of the official title obtained at the end of a course of studies in a university or in an institute of higher education.It conforms to a European model created as an initiative of the European Commission, European Council and UNESCO-CEPES.

The purpose of the diploma supplement is to make the degree more "transparent" because it is supplemented with a description of the curriculum of studies carried out; it makes it easier for employers to be familiar with and evaluate new academic titles and facilitates academic and professional recognition of Italian titles abroad and the international movement of graduates.

It contains only official data on the student's academic career excluding discretionary evaluations, declarations of equivalence or suggestions on recognition; and describes the nature, level, context, contents and status of studies carried out and completed by the student.

It is divided into 8 sections that contain the following information:

  • personal details of the student;
  • qualification awarded (e.g. Master of Science in xxx, field of study yyy; name of institution that issued the qualification, address of university, etc);
  • level of qualification (e.g. five-year cycle of university studies, program duration and admission requirements);
  • curriculum and exam marks and graduation grade with details of marking scale used;
  • function of qualification (access to further study, professional status conferred by qualification);
  • additional information (relevant elements in the student's curriculum, such as internships, study periods abroad, etc);
  • National higher education system in Italy.
The Diploma Supplement, bilingual version, is available only to graduates, and, because it is not subject to a stamp duty ‘imposta di bollo’, it can only be collected upon request to be exclusively submitted to the Academic Affairs Division Desk (P.zza Sraffa 11 room 218 accessible thorugh the One-Stop Service Center Piazza Sraffa 13) The timelines for the issue of the certifications will be communicated when submitting the request.
