From December 2018 onwards, Linköping University issues digital degree certificates. This will reduce the waiting time for students to get their certificate after applying. It will also enable students to send a proper certificate by e-mail or through online application services.
A digital degree certificate contains the same information as a degree certificate issued on paper. The original PDF-file is filed at the university, and a copy is sent to the student by e-mail. The certificate contains digital signatures, to verify that it is an authentic document issued by Linköping University.
Information for recruiters
All digital degree certificates issued by Linköping University contain two digital signatures. This is to ensure all our degree certificates are signed in a safe and legally binding way. By checking the signatures, you can see that no changes has been made to the documents as well as which organisation the certificate was issued by.
The first signature is issued by Comfact, to verify the signature please visit
