The diplomas for master's degrees are printed consecutively after the result for the master's exam has been registered and the deadline for appealing the grade is passed. It will take a minimum of 4 weeks from the final exam date to the diploma is printed. Most master's diplomas are printed in the period July - August. If you need your diploma sooner, please contact vitnemal@mnfa.uib.no.

The diploma supplement is always in English and contains the same information as the diploma. If you need the actual diploma translated, you will have to use an authorized translator and you will need to cover the expenses yourself.
