Requirement for verification and certification (apostilization/legalization/superlegalization)
Every applicant must submit officially verified and certified original of the upper secondary education certificate with transcript.

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 upper 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.

Contact details of where to find competent authorities are on the following link: link.

Apostilled/legalized/superlegalized documents on upper secondary education must be delivered to the Study Office prior to the registration to study.

Verified and certified documents on upper 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.
