Have you finished studying here or are you on the home straight? Why not join our international Alumni Network and stay in touch with us in the future. We are be happy to inform you about what you can expect after your studies – from starting your career to going abroad.

Certification of diplomas/graduation certificates


You finished your studies and need an apostille of your degree certificates or diplomas (for a fee)?
FPlease contact the Landesdirektion Sachsen (Regional Directorate of Saxony) to arrange for an apostille to be issued. Currently, it is only possible to request one by post. The application must include the application form and your certificates in the original or as a pre-certified copy. Send your application to the following postal address:

  • Landesdirektion Sachsen, Dienststelle Dresden, Stauffenbergallee 2, 01099 Dresden

If you are planning to leave Germany, we recommend that you apply for an apostille before you leave. The apostille can serve as confirmation of your obtained degree for future employers. You can find more information on obtaining an apostille on the website of the Landesdirektion Sachsen and in this information flyer.

Diploma Supplement

Contact your study office/examination office directly for the issuing of a Diploma Supplement. The Diploma Supplement is an important part of the diploma, as it greatly aids the rating and classification of academic degrees for both academic and career purposes. It explains your degree in more detail and also refers to any periods of study abroad. You will receive this in German and English. Please note that no Diploma Supplement can be issued for degree programmes leading to a state examination (Staatsexamen).
