We are aware of the fact that the coronavirus situation can cause delays with getting the required documents in order, e.g. if your institution is closed.
Unfortunately, the University of Helsinki is not in a position to make any exceptions in the admissions process due to extenuating circumstances, including providing the required educational documents. However, in order to give you some additional time, we have pushed the deadline for delivering your documents forward as much as possible until 29 Jan 2020 at 15:00 (UTC+2).
If you have difficulties with obtaining certified paper copies of your official educational documents, please check if your university provides verified electronic documents instead. We accept verified educational documents that are sent through certain international transcript services. We also accept electronic educational documents that we can verify using an electronic verification service offered by the degree-awarding institution. Please note, however, that uncertified PDF copies of educational documents are not accepted, even if they are sent from the university’s email address. Check our detailed information about electronic documents before submitting your enclosures.
If your educational institution does not provide verified electronic documents, you must follow the regular instructions for submitting the required enclosures. We advise you to speak with your educational institution to determine if you will be able to get the required verified documentation in time.
