Degree and career

After you have finished your studies, you can send in your application for an academic degree.


  • When you have finished your studies and all results are registered in Ladok, you can apply for your degree certificate.
  • All exam certificates are issued in Swedish and English in one and the same document.
  • The exam certificate also includes the Diploma Supplement, which describes the programme in English.

What do I do?

You apply to the Faculty of Medicine for both an academic degree and a professional qualification. You do this by filling in the form, "Application for degree certificate".  

If you wish to include freestanding courses and/or courses from other universities/higher education institutions in your academic degree, you must fill in the form, "Curriculum Vitae".
