What happens after the diploma is issued?

Published: 7 September 2016

Your degree will be registered in the student documentation system, Ladok, and your diploma sent to you by mail (4 days in Sweden) to the address registered in Ladok.  If you have added a temporary change of address when you applied for your degree, it will be sent to that address.

Note! You will receive the only original version of your diploma. In the event that you lose your diploma, you can apply for a copy of the original.
