About the diploma

The Master's Graduation Ceremony is a celebration of students that recently have or soon will complete their master's degree. You will not receive your diploma during the ceremony. The reason for this is that the examination results for the spring semester are not yet ready for many of our candidates.

All diplomas and transcripts from UiB will mainly be produced digitally. You will find your results and degree obtained at www.vitnemalsportalen.no. Through the Diploma Registry (Vitnemålsportalen), you can share your results (grades) and degrees (diplomas) with others as needed. Should you need a diploma on paper, you must order this via this form.

Please read more about the diploma on the this web page.
