The digital degree certificate is delivered to a secondary email address (= different from your tuni email address). So add your secondary e-mail address to Sisu  well in advance. In case of problems, you can contact the study office.

Digital degree certificates awarded by Tampere University meet the highest EU level requirements. You can make copies of the file and keep an electronic signature on the copies. The signature is displayed through signature in the PDF file. In addition, the authenticity of the signature can be verified using the Digital and Population Data Services Agency's "Inspect PDF Document" service Fineid - Check the PDF document or on  TAU's website The verification of electronic documents | Tampere University (

The digital certificate is the student’s official degree certificate. Students can print a paper copy of the certificate or request to have a copy when they apply for graduation. Students are informed by email when the copy of the certificate has been posted. After graduation you can also pick up the copy from the Student Affairs Office.

Also in the future, you can order a verified copy of your degree certificate on the self-service channel, for example, when you are applying for postgraduate studies or work abroad. Verified copies of the degree certificate are issued for specific needs. In these cases, Tampere University typically sends the copy directly to the recipient in a sealed envelope.
