  2. When you have completed the application form, please check the information carefully before submitting the application by clicking on the "Next" button.

Required documents:

  • English Proficiency
  • Scan of original high school diploma and transcript (which entitle the student to university studies in his/her home country) or bachelor's degree if applying for master.*
  • A copy of your passport. EU/EEA/Swiss citizens may submit a copy of a valid identity card which clearly states citizenship (in English or French) in place of a passport copy.

Transcripts from other countries may be received as scans of originals (or certified copies, if sent by post).

How to Submit Documents:

You should preferably upload your documents on your application in pdf-format.
Any documents that you scan for uploading must be from original documents. If the document is in colour, scan it in colour. Remember to include all pages of documents, front and back, no matter what the content is on the page. Be sure that everything on the document is visible on the scan, especially embossed stamps. We only accept pdf-format.

You could also send your documents by regular post within two weeks after making the online application. For some countries, school documents must be submitted this way. Read more about specific country requirements here.

Important

  • Scan of original documents should be made of both the documents in original language and an officially certified translation.
  • All hard copies (sent by post) must be officially certified as true copies, which means they should be stamped and signed by the issuing school or a notary public.
