Instructions on the Documents
All educational documents must be officially certified and translated. However, note that there are country-specific document requirements in place for some degree-awarding countries. Documents from these countries must be attested or submitted in a certain way. These Country-specific requirements must be followed first and foremost, before any regular requirements for attesting documents. There are no exceptions to these rules.
Please note that University Admissions Finland and University of Lapland do not return any documents.
Instructions for a motivation letter and a portfolio can be found under admission criteria.
