Diploma Supplement  is a supplementary document accompanying a higher education diploma (a diploma, degree or certificate etc) that aims international transparency and academic/professional recognition. Diploma Supplement gives information on the level, context, content and usage areas of the education the holder of the qualification has successfully completed. Diploma Supplement is an objective document that avoids evaluations on equality and recognition and valu judgements. It is a document that can comply with local needs.


Diploma Supplement includes the following eight (8) sections: information  identifying the qualification, information on the level of the qualification, information on the contents and results gained, information on the function of the qualification, additional information, certification of the supplement and information on the national higher education system


Adnan Menderes Üniversitesi automatically issues a Diploma Supplement in English for each student free of charge  upon graduation.

For students, the Diploma Supplement offers:

  • A precise description of their academic career and the competencies acquired during the study period;
  • An objective description of their achievements and competencies;

  • It raises the visibility of the institution abroad;
  • It promotes the employability of their graduates at national and international level;
  • It helps to save time since it provides the answers to a lot of recurrent questions put to administrative services in institutions about the content and portability of diplomas.
