According to the European Commission, “the Diploma Supplement (DS) is designed as an aid to support the recognition of academic qualifications. The Diploma Supplement is an important tool of the European Higher Education Area for graduates to ensure that their degrees are recognised by higher education institutions, public authorities and employers in their home countries and abroad.”
The Diploma Supplement provides more information on the type, level, context and content of studies successfully completed by the original degree holder. It should be noted that the DS does not substitute for the actual degree title.
AUEB provides a Diploma Supplement to all holders of study titles at the undergraduate and graduate level. The Diploma Supplement is provided automatically and free of charge during graduation, according to legal requirements.
