Application checklist

The application should consist of the following:

  • Official scanned copies of degree and graduation certificates in their original language
  • Official translations of degree and graduation certificates
  • Official certified transcript of records in their original language
  • Official translations of transcript of records
  • Proof of English language proficiency
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Letter of motivation
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Copy of passport photo page

All documents must be original. All translations must be officially certified and accompanied by copies of the original documents. Incomplete applications will not be processed, nor will applications received by email or fax. Only exception to this is the reference letters, which are send either via email or postal mail by the referee directly to the programme coordinator. Applications will not be considered unless the documents requested are received in English or Finnish. The official test report certificate must be submitted directly from the test administrator and must arrive before the application deadline.

In addition to the standard document requirements, there are specific requirements in place for educational documents from certain countries. Please check if there are any country-specific requirements for the country where your degree was awarded and then follow the instructions. The country-specific requirements must be followed first and foremost, before any regular requirements for attesting documents.
