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


Legalisation (or apostille)

If your educational document 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 the 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
