Follow the steps below to request a degree certificate (diploma) for the Research Master Child Development and Education.

Please read carefully the general rules that apply to the request of degree certificates.

General UvA rules for requesting a degree certicate

In order to graduate for the Research Master Child Development and Education you need to request your degree certificate in SIS as well as fill in the online graduation form.

Step 1: Request  your degree certificate in SIS

You can submit a request for a degree certificate via the student centre of the student information system SIS when you are following your last course and are expecting to have acquired the necessary number of study points shortly.

Go to SIS

When you log on to SIS click on ‘Study advice/degree cert.’ followed by ‘Apply for degree certificate’. Make sure to choose the correct certification date (examination date). This is the last working day of the month in which you receive your last grade. In most cases this is the month, in which you hand in your master thesis.Note: you cannot choose a certification date that is already in the past. So be sure to request your degree certificate ahead of time.

Step 2: Fill in the online graduation form and upload the required documents

Once you have completed the entire research master programme, you can fill in the online graduation form. With this form we ask you to provide information that is required in order to process your degree certificate request.

Go to Graduation form

The degree certificate request can only be processed in SIS if all grades, including your grade for the Research Master Thesis, have been registered in the system. The last grade obtained (usually for the Research Master Thesis), will be dated the day that this grade is handed in at the administrative office. Your examination date (graduation date) will be the last  working day of the month in which you request your degree certificate.

Step 3: Terminate your enrolment at the University of Amsterdam

You must be enrolled at UvA up to and including the certification date (examination date). If you have requested your degree certificate, you can submit a request for termination of enrolment in Studielink with effect from the first day of the month following the certification date. The enrolment termination date that you submit must not precede the certification date. Enter the reason for termination of enrolment in Studielink: diploma received. You will continue to pay tuition fees until your request for a degree certificate has been approved. If applicable, you will receive a refund of any excess tuition fees you have paid.
