Statements & proof of graduation

Statement of graduation

If your diploma will be awarded a while after you complete your degree but you need formal proof of graduation, the Board of Examiners can issue a statement confirming that you have completed your studies. Contact your study adviser or coordinator for assistance.

Certified copies

Do you need a certified copy of your diploma or transcript? You can download a certified extract of your diploma from the DUO diploma registry (Dutch government education agency - website in Dutch). This has the same status as a certified copy in the Netherlands.

Alternatively you can request a certified copy from your study programme or faculty. Take a look under your faculty or programme tab for more information, or contact the education administration.

Legalisation of your diploma

In some situations you may be asked to provide a legalised version of your Leiden University diploma, for example if you intend to work or study abroad. You can arrange this via DUO (Dutch government education agency).

Diploma Data Duo

We would like to refer you to the diploma register of DUO. If you have a DigiD, you can download an official excerpt with your diploma data for free. The digital extract has the same value as a certified copy of the diploma. If you do not have a DigiD, please contact the osc.fgga@fgga.leidenuniv.nl.

Also employers and organizations can apply for an official excerpt at https://duo.nl/zakelijk/diploma/diplomaregister-werkgevers.jsp.
