Requirement for verification and certification (apostilization/legalization/superlegalization)

Every applicant must submit officially verified and certified original of the secondary education certificate and officially verified and certified copy of bachelor diploma.

Type of verification and certification of the documents depend on the country where they were issued and existence of international agreement between Slovakia and this country on mutual recognition of documents on education.

Applicants need to get “Apostille” on the original document on education (please check with the authority giving apostille). The certificate must be in the official language of the country where it has been issued.

In case the country does not issue Apostille, the applicants must have the documents „superlegalized“. Superlegalization is done by the Ministry of Education, followed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and finally by the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in that country or in the country which acts on its behalf.

Exceptions are applicants who have completed their secondary education in the following countries: Croatia, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, France and Czech Republic. Applicants from these countries should provide only the notary authorized copy of the document.

Apostilled/legalized/superlegalized documents on secondary education and bachelor degree in English language must be delivered to the Study Office prior to the registration to study. If the original documents are not in English, copy of the original certificate must be delivered too.

Verified and certified documents on secondary education need to be also translated to Slovak language by Slovak court translator. The translation can be done in Slovakia after applicant´s registration to study. On request, the Study Office can provide student with details of company based in Košice offering translation services.

If bachelor diploma is not issued in English or Slovak languages, official translation of verified and certified copy of bachelor diploma into Slovak or English language is also required.
