Digital Diploma

The diploma

Your diploma is issued as a series of PDF documents. A complete diploma consists of up to 4 different files:

• Degree statement and result overwiev
• Diploma supplement
• Competence Profile (DK)
• Competence Profile (UK)

When you click on a document you will be able to download it to your own computer.


All pages in the personal documents (degree statement and result overview) are secured with an embedded verification link that allows the recipient of the diploma to view the document directly from the SDU server.
  In this way, SDU achieves a high level of security in relation to the use of the digital diploma and the recipient obtains a high level of assurance that the received diploma is genuine.



The verification link

A valid digital diploma must contain a verification link. If the link is removed from the diploma, the diploma is no longer valid documentation for degree and results from SDU.

SDU maintains a copy of your diploma on the university's secure serve. A verification link will be embedded on the diploma. If the recipient of the diploma click on the link, he or she will be able to see the original of your diploma, obtained directly from the university's server. The recipient of the diploma can only see the original of the document on which the verification link exists, no other content in the Digital Diploma Mailbox.
