The degree obtained by graduates of the European Master in Renewable Energy at the end of the course is awarded by the respective core university. Degrees awarded by Loughborough University, Mines-Paristech, Universidad de Zaragoza, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg and Hanze UAS are therefore fully recognised as postgraduate university degrees both in the respective countries (United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands) and in the other Members States of the European Union.
Non European students who successfully complete the European Master in Renewable Energy obtain a degree which is supposed to be recognised by the relevant authorities also in their countries of origin. However, the recognition of an educational qualification depends on the competent authorities at national and regional level outside the EU.
In addition to their diploma from their respective core university, students receive a Certificate of Equivalence from EUREC. This document formally states that the different degrees given by the five core Universities are equivalent in value and contents.
