Diploma Supplement (DS)


Diploma Supplement label

In 2010, the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania was awarded the Diploma Supplement label as the first and only higher education institution in Greece. The label is a ‘certification’ awarded by the European Commission to those institutions that have properly implemented this aspect of the Bologna agenda.

The introduction of the Bologna system in higher education in Europe comprises various aspects. Issuing a Diploma Supplement and properly applying the ECTS system, including the relevant documents, are services offered to the student, plus they make an international comparison of education systems and certificates possible.

Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement (DS) is a document in which the nature, level, context, content and status of the successfully completed degree programme is evaluated independently, as stated in the certificate in question of which the DS forms an integral part. It is free from any value judgments and exclusively concerns the degree programme followed by the student. The aim of the Diploma Supplement is to stimulate international ‘transparency’ and recognition of qualifications obtained at home or abroad.

Since 2005, all students of the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania receive a Diploma Supplement automatically and free of charge with their Master of Science degree certificates. The Diploma Supplement is provided in English and includes the Transcript of Records.
