Diploma Supplement Application Procedure
This Diploma Supplement (DS) model was developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and UNESCO/CEPES. The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve the international ‘transparency’ and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates etc.). It is designed to provide a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the individual named on the original qualification to which this supplement is appended.
Diploma Supplement is one of the main parameters of the Bologna Process. The 48 European countries taking part in the Bologna Process have agreed that each graduate in their respective country should receive the Diploma Supplement automatically, free of charge and in a major European language. Thus the Diploma Supplement is acknowledged by the majority of the universities in these countries.
The diploma supplement consists of 8 mandatory sections, and is issued in two languages, English and the language of study (Kazakh or Russian):
1. Information Identifying the holder of qualification
2. Information Identifying the Qualification
3. Information on the Level of the Qualification
4. Information on the contents and results gained
5. Information on the Function of Qualification
6. Certification of the Supplement
7. Information on the System of the National Higher Education System
The format of the DS of our university was developed by the Banknote Factory of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The given format has several levels of protection, which serves as a good protection from falsification and plagiarism.
The following documents should be submitted to the Accreditation and Ranking Office:
1. Copy of the Identification Document
2. Copy of the Diploma
3. Copy of the Traditional Diploma Supplement (Transcript)
DS is issued one time free of charge for each student and is registered in the registration journal.
