How to apply for a diploma?
Students apply for their Degree Certificate with the Graduation Service in MyDiak (Studies menu > Graduation service).
You may start your graduation process as soon as you have the right to fill out the AVOP feedback questionnaire. Before this you can familiarise yourself with the different stages of the process. On the front page of the service you’ll find f. ex. links to all the guides related to graduation and the Degree Certificate Application.
As of March 1, 2023, the official diploma of graduates from Diak is an electronic diploma. Paper diplomas are no longer issued. Diplomas issued before March 1, 2023 will not be converted to electronic.
An electronic diploma does not require separate authentication. You can send the diploma as it is to different authorities or as an attachment to a job application. The electronic diploma can be printed on paper, but the diploma is official only in electronic form.
The degree diploma can be downloaded on the day of your graduation from MyDiak’s Print Service for 30 days.
The authenticity of the electronic diploma issued by Diak can be verified in the Atomi Validator service. The authenticity of the certificate can also be checked in the certificate service on the website of the Digital and Population Information Agency.
You can find more information about the electronic diploma here.
Resending the electronic diploma in place of the lost one and an officially certified paper copy of the electronic diploma are subject to a fee.
In the My Studyinfo service (My studies) you can also view your own studies and, if necessary, share the information with a sharing link.
