The Diploma Supplement is appended to the degree diploma and serves different purposes:
  1. It describes the Portuguese higher education system and its framework up to the issuance date of the diploma;
  2. It depicts both the IPB and the school issuing the diploma;
  3. It provides description of the nature, level, degree, admission procedures, length of studies as well as its objectives;
  4. It gives detailed information of the studies pursued and the achieved results.
The Diploma Supplement model complies with the regulations established by the Portuguese Decree Order no 30 issued on January 10 2008 and follows the European Commission’s model, designed by the Council of Europe and UNESCO/CEPES (http://ec.europa.eu/education/lifelong-learning-policy/ds_en.htm). The purpose of the diploma supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve the international transparency and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates, etc.). The Diploma Supplement is a bilingual document, written both in Portuguese and English. It is issued automatically by the IPB whenever a degree diploma is issued and free of charge to every student upon graduation.

Diploma supplement examples:
a. 1st cycle - bachelor programmes (Licenciado degree)
b. 2nd cycle - master programmes (Mestre degree) 

Additional information about the student:

In section 6.1 of the Diploma Supplement, activities that are not part of the regular academic record of the student but are meritorious and worthy of record can be described.
To this end:
  1. IPB provides a set of forms in order to certificate the participation in complementary activities;
  2. For each activity in which he/she has participated, the student must download, complete and print the form (Acrobat Reader, or equivalent software, should be used to fill the form, since it is a digital form, in PDF format);
  3. After signed the declaration must be submitted by the student to the Academic Services of the IPB.
