Since the academic year 2005/2006 all graduates from the Bachelor and Master’s study programmes at International Business School at Vilnius University (IBS at VU) have been provided with a Diploma Supplement (DS).The Diploma Supplement is being issued in English and Lithuanian languages, given automatically and free of charge to every student upon graduation. The Diploma Supplement is a document produced through a joint the European Commission, the Council of Europe and UNESCO/CEPES initiative.
The Diploma Supplement is an annex to the original qualification. It provides essential information on the nature, level, context, content and status of any higher education qualification and was created in order to ease the problems of recognition and promote transparency. It is a document that facilitates international recognition of qualifications for academic and/or professional purposes.
Being an effective tool for transparency and promoting informed judgments about qualifications, Diploma Supplement does not replace or substitute the original qualification documents as well as does not guarantee automatic recognition of the qualification for either academic or professional purposes.
