The Polish maturity certificate, or an equivalent foreign document, for instance secondary school leaving certificate or high school diploma (including a supplement or transcript of grades, if applicable) entitling you to apply for admission to studies in the country (or in the education system) where your document was issued. In the case of non-Polish and non-EU/OECD/EFTA educational documents (IB and EB diplomas excluded), you should also:
  • legalise or apostille your certificate or diploma – read more about legalisation and apostille below;
  • submit a sworn translation into Polish or English of your certificate or diploma (including its supplement – if applicable) – read more about accepted sworn translations below;

Please note that the school-leaving certificate recognition requirement does not apply to IB and EB diplomas, documents issued in EU or OECD member states, as well as in China, Belarus, Ukraine and Libya.

5. The document confirming your results in school contest or sporting achievement declared in the Internet Registration System as basis for awarding points (if applicable).

6. The document confirming your knowledge of English (required only in the case of studies in English) – list of recognised documents.


Sworn translations


All documents issued in a language other than Polish or English should be submitted along with their sworn translation into Polish or English.

A sworn translation can be done by:

  • a sworn translator registered by the Polish Ministry of Justice;
  • a sworn translator registered in any EU/EFTA/OECD member state;
  • a consul of the Republic of Poland residing in the territory of the country where the document was issued.

Regular translations can be certified by one of the above bodies. Translations certified by a notary are not recognised.

If you encounter any difficulties regarding translation of your documents, please contact the Promotion and Admissions Office.


Legalisation (or apostille)

If your degree diploma was issued by a non-Polish or non-EU/OECD/EFTA institution, you need to legalise it or endorse it with an apostille. Your diploma may be legalised by:

  • a consul of the Republic of Poland residing in th​e territory of the country where (or in the education system of which) the document was issued;
  • education authorities of the country where (or in the education system of which) the document was issued;
  • diplomatic representation or consular office of the country where (or in the education system of which) the document was issued, accredited in any EU/EFTA/OECD member state.

If a country in which given document was issued is a party to The Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, legalisation is replaced by an apostille.

The list of countries which signed to The Hague Convention can be found at https://www.hcch.net/en/states/hcch-members

Information concerning national bodies competent in the area of apostilles in each country can be found at https://www.hcch.net/en/instruments/conventions/authorities1/?cid=41.


School-leaving certificate or diploma recognition

Such a procedure is conducted by Polish education offices, including the Education Office in Warsaw.

Secondary school-leaving documents issued in EU/EFTA/OECD member states, in China, Belarus, Ukraine and Libya, as well as IB and EB diplomas, are recognised based on provisions of the Polish law and/or international agreements, therefore no additional recognition procedure is required.

For more information, please go to the Education Office in Warsaw's webpage.
