As of January 1, 2024, qualifications can be issued entirely digitally in Ladok. Each higher educational institution chooses when to activate this new functionality.
This enables students to download an e-stamped degree certificate that can be verified by the recipient of the document. The degree certificate that the student retrieves is a representation of the decision on the qualification stored in Ladok. Therefore, it is possible to download the degree certificate as many times as needed, and the information will always be identical to the current decision on the degree.
Verify the document
Since the digital degree certificate is e-stamped, it is possible to check if the document has been altered since it was downloaded from Ladok. You can verify the document by uploading it to Ladok’s verification page.
It is also possible to verify the e-stamp by using established PDF readers.
Verify the decision on the degree
In addition to verifying the document, it is also possible to check the actual decision on the degree. To do this, the student needs to provide you with a verification code. Using the code and the individual’s personal identification number, you can access information about the degree certificate and its details. The information is retrieved directly from Ladok.
