How to submit documents

When sending in application enclosures, please remember to write down the UAF application number on the documents. You should also print and submit the cover page that will be sent to you once you submit the online application. If application documents are mailed in by a third party, e.g. your university officials, we will attach them to your application according to the personal details on those documents.

If you are applying to more than one programme, you need to submit separate documents for each of the programmes. The only exceptions to this rule are language test documents and electronic transcripts. For more information on these, please see Language Skills and Electronic Transcripts.

All educational documents must be either officially certified by the awarding institution, or legalised. Officially certified copies issued by a Finnish Notary Public will also be accepted. Please note, however, that there are country-specific document requirements in place for some degree-awarding countries. Documents from these countries must be attested or submitted in a certain way. These Country-Specific Requirements must be followed first and foremost, before any regular requirements for attesting documents.

It is always the applicant’s responsibility to make sure that the application documents reach University Admissions Finland by the deadline. University Admissions Finland does not process any application documents that have arrived after the deadline.

Please note that University Admissions Finland does not return any documents.
