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.
Do you need a certified copy of your diploma? 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).
