The degree certificate is issued in two pieces, one in Finnish language and one in English language. The Doctor also gets a Diploma Supplement, which is written in English and provides a standardised description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies completed by its holder. Due to the signatures to the certificates it may take some days before the degree documents are ready.
