The Diploma Supplement should be free from any value judgements, equivalence statements or recommendations for recognition. It should contain information in all eight sections. If no information is given, this should be justified.
Sections 1 - 7 of the Diploma Supplement contain the student's personal data.
Section 8 of the Diploma Supplement - GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE NATIONAL HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM: this section gives general information about the level of qualification and the type of institution that awarded it. See PDF download.
