(the information below was updated in JANUARY 2017)


1. For the specialty (bespoke) programmes. When the Personalized (tailor-made) programme is structured in a curricular format, and with a minimum of 90 ECTS total course-credits, the pertaining and exclusive Special Diploma in Leadership is awarded by THIERRY proper, upon the successful completion of all course requirements, and on recommendation of the school's Faculty. In accordance with the THIERRY-INSIL academic aegis system THIERRY can award its Special diploma in its own right but not without a supervisory council approval (a process phrased in Latin as: 'de suo iure promovendi, non sine superiore consilio').


2. For the conventional curriculum-programmes. On completing, either at THIERRY (until August 2017), or at INSIL the curriculum of the DAL or PALS diploma-programme, the graduate then completes, at INSIL, the supplemental course requirements towards the accredited degree granted there (MA, or PhD). Since 2010 the degree-completion phase was already taking place at INSIL, and degrees awarded by virtue of its officially recognized and government-approved intercollegiate charter. The authorised faculty and jury members express the recommendation that a programme-graduate be awarded the degree, by the authority vested with the powers to confer degrees, and in accordance with the pertaining provisions, and inter-institutional agreement when it applies. In case of a co-tutelage there can be a special protocol procedure with the other institution of higher education or university. The master's or doctoral degrees are thus -not- conferred by THIERRY proper, but by INSIL. For  THIERRY-students who graduated before September 2008 an alternate charter regulation system than the abovementioned one was then applicable.


3. Transcripts of graduate student record. The transcripts of student record (with course titles, credits, grades,...) are issued only by INSIL International Higher Institute for Leadership. Since 2010 INSIL is the custodian of all student-records, also for the graduates who completed their curricula at THIERRY in the preceding decade. In all cases, and to allow the transfer of credits to third-party institutions, the transcript of student record is thus always issued by INSIL. 


4. Alumni communications. It can occur that an alumnus/alumna colloquially refers to THIERRY as his/her alma mater, being the institution they attended, or hold the degree from, whilst it is the programme-completion at our school that he/she is referring to (the degree proper having been awarded in accordance with the pre-2009, or the post-2009 process explained above). Further, may claim to be an INSIL-THIERRY graduate, the person who meets three conditions combined: firstly, of his/her having successfully completed an entire THIERRY-curriculum. Secondly, of his/her having earned the certificate, diploma, or degree pertaining to the programme attended. And thirdly, of his/her not having relinquished, renounced, or rejected the individual rights and responsibilities inherent to graduation, nor thereafter.
