What is the European Diploma Supplement?

New qualifications proliferate worldwide and countries are constantly changing their qualification systems and educational structures. With an increasing number of mobile citizens seeking fair recognition of their qualifications outside their home countries, the non-recognition and poor evaluation of qualifications is now a global problem. Since original credentials alone do not always provide sufficient information, it may be difficult to gauge the level and function of a qualification without detailed explanations. The European Diploma Supplement is a response to these challenges.

It promotes transparency in higher education and fair and informed judgements about qualifications. It aids graduate mobility and facilitates access to lifelong learning opportunities. It also accommodates rapid changes in qualifications. LYIT produces the European Diploma Supplement according to a template jointly developed by the European Commission, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.
Since 2010 “automatically made available”, so we’d probably need to explain how that works.

For more information see the official website of the Bologna Process.
