A student who has completed the studies required for a particular degree may apply for a degree certificate.
The easiest way to apply for a degree is via Ladok for students. The student will sign in using their Umu-id and then click the "Degrees and certificates" tab. Those who can not apply through the link can use an application form. If so, contact Infocenter to get an application form.
The student applies when all courses required for the degree are completed and the grades are reported in Ladok.
All degree applications are examined on the basis of the relevant degree requirements by the degree officer at Student Services. If the application is accepted, the degree is awarded and a degree certificate will be sent by e-mail to the student.
You will find the relevant information for students on the student web. There you can read about:
- the degree requirements
- specified local qualification descriptors
- specified main fields of study
- which degrees Umeå University is permitted to award
- how students can apply for degrees
Whereto shall I refer students who have questions?
Students will find information about degrees and a link to the degree application on the student web.
Students who have questions about requirements for a certain degree, can turn to the study advisor (or equivalent) at the department in question, or contact Infocenter. A student who needs study guidance or help with planning his or her studies in order to get a certain degree, should always turn to the study advisor at the department.
