- The Diploma Supplement (DS) is a document accompanying a higher education diploma, providing a standardised description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies completed by its holder. It is produced by the higher education institutions according to standards agreed by the European Commission, the Council of Europe and UNESCO. The Diploma Supplement is also part of the Europass framework transparency tools .The supplement is designed as an aid to help (but not guarantee) recognition – it is not a CV or a substitute for the original qualification. It has the following eight sections of information:
- the holder of the qualification
- the qualification
- its level and function
- the contents and results gained
- certification of the supplement
- details of the national higher education system concerned (provided by the National Academic Recognition Information Centres (NARICs) )
- any additional relevant information.
Graduates in all the countries taking part in the Bologna Process have the right to receive the Diploma Supplement automatically, free and in a major European language.
2. Legalization of your Diploma Supplement, if you intend to legalize it
If you are abroad and wish to legalize the Diploma Supplement I would suggest you collaborate with the colleagues that are (still) in Italy. If you wish to share details on the Legalization of the Diploma Supplement do not hesitate to communicate them to your colleagues.
- The Legalization of your Diploma Supplement can be done only in Rome (or Province), Italy.
- It is not necessary for you to delegate someone by letter. The only requirement is that the Diploma Supplement must be brought in original to the Office that can legalize it (the Prefettura). The Legalization is Free of Charge. You only have to buy the Marca da Bollo of € 14,62.
