As an IB student you need to request the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) to send us the digital results of your IB diploma as soon as possible. We need to verify your diploma no later than 31 August 2023. We do not need any other documents or a resume from you.
Please use one of the following services for your final IB Diploma Programme results to be sent directly to the University of Amsterdam.
Before the release of results
If you make a request before July 2023 (for May examination sessions) or January 2023 (for November examination sessions), you should contact your Diploma Programme coordinator to submit a request to the IB on your behalf for your results to be sent directly to the University of Amsterdam. The University of Amsterdam IB institute code is: 000602.
For more information, please visit the IB website.
After the release of results
After July 2023 (for May examination sessions) or January 2023 (for November examination sessions), IB graduates can request for their results to be sent directly to the University of Amsterdam using the form on https://rrs.ibo.org.
Or send us a certified copy
Although the University of Amsterdam prefers to verify your IB results online, alternatively you may send certified documents of your IB diploma and transcript via regular mail to the UvA.
What is a certified copy?
A certified copy is a photocopy of the original IB diploma or transcript with a wet ink stamp and signature from your school/university or from a notary. Uncertified photocopies or scanned copies of original documents will not be accepted. Do not send us the original documents.

Please put your name and UvA student number on each certified document.
Please note that your enrolment at the University of Amsterdam cannot be completed without the abovementioned documents and no later than 31 August 2023.
Applicants who have or will obtain an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma and have applied for one of the programmes that take part in this IB pilot, do not have to submit an application file in our application portal in SIS and are therefore exempted from paying the application fee.
