The copies must be officially certified (attested) copies (linkki educational documents -sivulle) issued by the awarding institution or attested photocopies certified by a Notary Public. Copies of copies will not be accepted.
Unless your certificate and transcript of records are issued in English, Finnish, or Swedish, the official translation (linkki educational documents -sivulle) into one of these languages must accompany. The translations must be issued by the awarding institution or be translated by an official translator. The same applies to all other documents with which you support your application.
The documents will be verified as a part of the assessment of applications. Accepted students will be required to present the original documents before registration at the University. If it transpires that false information has been provided, the right to study will be revoked.
If you have submitted an application in a previous application round, please notice that UTA does not send your documents to UAF. If you apply for more than one programme, you must submit separate applications and enclosures for each programme.
