Admission to studies occurs AFTER PROVIDING ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS ON THE LAST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER (the exact date will be provided in August 2020).

* Apostille is attached to your original document to verify it is legitimate and authentic.

**Legalization of diploma

is the certification of a document’s formal conformity with the law binding in the place of its issue or of the authenticity of the seals and signatures placed on the document. Legalisation of educational documents may thus be significant for determining the country within whose education system a document was issued and whether it is necessary to verify its authenticity. In some countries, such as Poland, the internal laws oblige a qualification holder to legalise their document before taking it abroad. Legalisation of a document by the relevant authorities in the country in which it was issued increases its credibility.

Certificates may be legalised (or receive an apostille – see below) by:

  • the consul of the Republic of Poland having jurisdiction with respect to the state in the territory of which, or in the education system of which, the given certificate was issued, or
  • the educational authorities of the state in the territory of which, or in the education system of which, the given certificate was issued, or
  • a diplomatic representation or consular office of the state in the territory of which, or in the education system of which, the given certificate was issued, accredited in the Republic of Poland or in any EU, OECD or EEA member state, where the said certificates or documents confer an entitlement to apply for admission to a higher education program in the states in question.
