Degree Certificate

Ownership of the degree obtained by students who complete the study plan for the undergraduate or integrated master's, master's or doctoral programs in which they are enrolled is proven by means of a degree registration certificate, accompanied by a diploma supplement. 

In professional higher technical courses, the title of the diploma is proven only by a certificate of registration.

Diploma Supplement

The diploma supplement is a bilingual document, written in Portuguese and English, complementary to the diploma, which describes the Portuguese higher education system, characterizes the institution that taught and conferred the diploma, the training carried out, while providing detailed information about the training and results obtained.

The diploma supplement is not a curriculum vitae, nor does it replace the diploma, and does not constitute proof of ownership of the license.

The University of Algarve recognized the relevance of a set of academic activities developed by the student, allowing their inclusion in the supplement to the diploma, in the item of Complementary Information (see box of Documents below).

Course letter (Diploma) and doctoral letter

In addition to the registration certificate, a course letter may be requested by the student if he has completed a bachelor's, master's or integrated master's or doctoral letter, if he has completed a doctorate.
