Information on DS (legislation, template, chart, etc)

Process of Implementation of the Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement accompanies the university diploma and contains a standardised description of the type, level, context and status of the degree programme successfully completed by the student. The Diploma Supplement creates transparency and simplifies the academic and professional recognition of professional qualifications (diplomas, academic degrees, achievement, etc.). In 1999, the University of Liechtenstein was one of the first institutions in Europe to introduce this EU/UNESCO/Council of Europe Diploma Supplement proposal, which it has since awarded to graduates as an accompaniment to the diploma.

Process of Implementation of the Diploma Supplement

According to the Act on Higher Education (by 25 November 2004), section 23, the Diploma Supplement contains information about completed qualifications of Bachelor, Master or Doctoral studies.
