After you have received the confirmation from the SPD Office that your degree has been awarded, you will be able to pick up your diploma normally within four weeks after you have completed the request form. Note that requests can take longer to process during summer. Once your diploma is ready you will receive a notification email via Studielink and your student email.

There are four ways to receive your diploma:

  1. Pick up the diploma at the helpdesk of the Erasmus Student Service Centre (Sanders Building). You can pick up the diploma yourself, or you can authorize someone else (see here). You will need to make an appointment to pick up the diploma.
  2. You can receive your diploma at the official graduation ceremony; more information in this event here.
  3. Submit a request to have the diploma sent to your home address through registered post (only outside the Netherlands) at your own expense; for more information contact (SPD) at
  4. You can request a certified digital extract of your diploma via DUO. You can find more information here.
