Diploma Supplements

What is a Diploma Supplement?

The diploma supplement is a document attached to a higher education certificate which aims to improve international  transparency and facilitate the academic and professional recognition of qualifications.

It was developed by a number of groups within the European Commission, and ties in closely with the Bologna Process objective to create a system of easily readable and comparable documents.

For further reading on the Diploma Supplement, see the Europe Unit's Guide to the Diploma Supplement.

All students registered on University of Wales validated programmes from the 1st January 2005 will receive a diploma supplement providing they successfully complete their award.

Students who are not successful in obtaining their award, or who receive an exit qualification, will receive a University of Wales transcript.

Students who successfully completed their award before the 1st January 2005 are eligible to receive a University of Wales transcript on request
