General document requirements
To complete your admissions application, you must provide the following documentation:
1. Record of completed upper secondary (high school) education
For your eligibility for courses and programmes at the bachelor's level to be determined - and for you to compete with other applicants for available places in courses and programmes - you must submit your upper secondary qualifications.
This completed education must qualify you for higher education studies in the country you received it.
2. Identification document
To speed up the processing of your application, we require a copy of the page in your passport with your personal data and photograph, or a similar identification document.
What about university records?
Your university qualifications cannot be considered instead of your upper secondary (high school) qualifications. However, the results from your previous university studies may help you meet the specific entry requirements for a course or programme. We therefore recommend that you submit documentation of your university studies.
To find out how to submit them, see the information for your country of study for master's applications.
Translation of documents not required
As documents from this country are normally issued in English, you don't need to provide translations.
