Steps to take before Graduation
Apply for the Degree Certificate
- Apply for the degree certificate with a separate application (in intranet) a minimum of two weeks before graduation
- It is possible to apply for the degree certificate even when all the grades are not marked in PAKKI yet but you have returned your assignments.
- Answer a national feedback questionnaire. Go to page www.avop.fi/en and sign in to the survey by using your own UAS credentials (normal computer user name and password, HAKA login). The questionnaire is long but important – it is used to compare universities of applied sciences and also our funding is based on these results, so please, fill it in carefully.
NOTE! KAMK username and -right
Your computer and network usernames will be deleted within one week of your graduation or resignation. At the same time, your email account and mail box and your personal network drives will be deleted. Please note that you must make sure that you have saved all important and necessary information before graduating.
The Diploma Supplement is an appendix to the higher education degree diploma/certificate for use in international contexts. The appendix is a document in English, which includes additional information about the studies you have completed and the level of your degree and how it qualifies you for further studies and working life. The Diploma Supplement facilitates graduate mobility and the academic and professional recognition of qualifications abroad.
All graduates (both first/bachelor and second cycle/master programmes) receive a Diploma Supplement automatically and free of charge from their higher education institution. A transcript of records in English is attached to the Diploma Supplement, where all completed courses and grades are listed. The Diploma Supplement is not a substitute or translation of the original qualification or transcript but it provides more information about the qualification.
More information about diploma supplement is available on the Commission’s website.
