Digital degree certificates
From 4 April 2024, the university will only issue digital degree certificates. The degree certificate consists of a PDF file with an e-stamp.

After applying, you will receive an email (to the email account registered in Ladok) when your degree certificate has been issued. After that, you can download the degree certificate yourself via Ladok for Students or Ladok for Alumni (via login with BankID or Freja eID+).

The degree certificate has an e-stamp, which means that it cannot be changed after retrieval from Ladok. If the degree certificate needs to be verified, it can be uploaded to Ladok's page for verification. It is also possible to verify the e-stamp via Adobe. Information and instructions regarding e-stamped documents and verification are included with your degree certificate.

Below you find a video on how to apply for degree certificate in Ladok.
