Study Guide


Degree certificate

The Student Office can issue certificates only in the cases contemplated by the law (see “Issue of certificates”). The Student Office will dispatch the Diploma Supplement to graduates of bachelor and master programmes. In order to guarantee an efficient delivery, please check the correctness of your mail address indicated in my SNS, and modify it if necessary.


Your diploma will be handed out during the official annual degree ceremony.

If you are unable to participate, you can collect the diploma from the Student Office after the degree ceremony (opening hours are listed at the bottom of this page). The diploma can also be collected by a person authorised by you. For this purpose, the person must enclose a written power of attorney and a copy of your ID and their own ID

If you need your diploma before the degree ceremony, please contact the Student Office to make sure that the diploma is ready. NB: If you collect your diploma beforehand, no other document will be handed out at the degree ceremony!

Diplomas in Italy are for personal use only and do not have to be presented to any authorities: The possession of the title is always proven by a self-declaration. If necessary, the authority will contact unibz to carry out checks on the veracity of the self-declarations made.

unibz is not authorised to authenticate documents. For this purpose, please contact an Italian municipality registry office.

For training courses and additional qualifications for support teachers, no diploma is provided.

Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement is an addition to the leaving certificate. It was developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and by Unesco-Cepes. The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve the international transparency and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications. It provides a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the student. It is free from any value-judgements, equivalence statements or suggestions about recognition.


The Diploma Supplement is issued automatically and free of charge to all graduates of bachelor and master programmes.

unibz issues the Diploma Supplement in Italian, German, English and after study conclusion dispatches it by e-mail. Here you can find an example.

The Diploma Supplement offers:

  • a diploma that is more readable and easily comparable abroad;
  • a precise description of their academic career and the competencies acquired during the study period;
  • an objective description of their achievements and competencies;
  • easier access to work opportunities or further studies abroad.
