These country specific requirements are applied on the admitted applicants' only, so during the application period we only require scanned enclosures attached (uploaded) to the application form. These uploaded documents can be scanned copies of the original degree certificates and transcripts as well as the translations when they are required.
Applicants whose degrees have been awarded in certain countries need to pay special attention to the requirements after they have been selected to the studies. In addition to the standard document requirements, educational documents from certain countries must be submitted in a certain way. These country specific requirements must be followed first and foremost, before any regular requirements for attesting documents.
In some cases the requirements only give instructions on the providing of a transcript. Please note that we require all admitted applicants to provide us both the degree certificate and the transcript of records unless stated otherwise in the following requirements.
Please also note that regular photocopies are not sufficient, even if they are sent by the awarding institution. The University of Eastern Finland only accepts official transcripts of record. It is also possible to submit electronic transcripts through a few recognized sources. For information on which electronic transcript sending services are accepted by the university, please see Electronic transcripts. If your institution uses one of the services, you can request for your official transcript of records to be electronically sent to the University of Eastern Finland.
