The Diploma Supplement (“Dodatek k diplomu”) is issued pursuant to S. 57 of Act. N° 111/1998 Col., on higher education, centrally as an uniform output of the Information System of CU. It follows the model developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and the organizations UNESCO/CEPES and on the basis of empirical experience drawn from the recommendations of higher education institutions with expertise in this area. It describes the nature, level, content, context and status of the type of studies that were successfully completed, and as a result the qualification was acquired. The Supplement suitably adds to the basic certificate of qualification. It can be used for national and international purposes as a tool of facilitating the academic and professional acknowledgement and mobility. It is conceived as a factual document not making any value judgements or equivalence statements relating the education. The Diploma Supplement is issued as a bilingual document (Czech-English) automatically and free of charge to all graduates.
