Documents issued on graduation
On graduation, students completing their studies in a doctoral, master’s, professional higher education or integrated curriculum are issued a diploma, a diploma supplement in Estonian (akadeemiline õiend) and a diploma supplement in English.
Usually students receive their diplomas at the graduation ceremony. In the summer of the 2019/2020 academic year, no traditional graduation ceremonies are held and graduates will get their diplomas in their unit in the second half of June on work days (Sat, Sun and June 22, 23 and 24 are not work days): see the contacts here
If necessary, students may authorise another person to pick up the diploma. Acceptable forms of authorisation are, for example, digitally signed, scanned or photographed authorisation letters sent to the email address of an employee of the structural unit. From 2 July 2020, graduates (excl. graduates of units outside Tartu) can collect their diplomas at the Office of Academic Affairs (Jakobi 1, entrance from the courtyard of the UT main building). If possible, send an advance notification to the office by email to diplom [ät] ut.ee. Exceptionally, the diploma can also be delivered to the student by registered mail or courier service, for a fee (sending in Estonia 8 EUR, sending abroad 15 EUR). Graduates can optionally order a certified copy of the diploma by e-mail (if necessary, the copy can be endorsed by the electronic seal of the university).
