Statements & proof of graduation

If your diploma will be awarded some time 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 advisor or coordinator for assistance.

Certified copies

For information about how to request a certified copy of your diploma or transcript please contact the Student Affairs Front Office, or take a look under your faculty or study programme tab.

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 Ministry of Education).
