If you have completed or are completing your degree in Nepal, an official transcript, mark sheet or result card indicating each attempt to complete a course as well as the years must be submitted to University of Helsinki by the awarding institution. The envelope must be sealed by the awarding institution’s official stamp across the back flap. The document must come to University of Helsinki directly from the awarding institution and cannot be sent by the applicant. Please note that regular photocopies are not sufficient, even if they are sent by the awarding institution. University of Helsinki only accepts official documents.
If your university in Nepal is unable to send the transcript, mark sheet or result card to University of Helsinki, please request that the attested documents be placed in an officially sealed envelope with the awarding institution’s official stamp across the back flap. Have the envelope returned to you to forward to University of Helsinki. The official transcript, mark sheet or result card must in this case be attested by the Controller of Examinations or the Registrar’s Office, and the envelope must be sealed with the attesting office’s stamp across the back flap.
Transcripts, mark sheets and result cards must always be awarded by the main university or a college with degree-awarding status, and documents granted by affiliated colleges will not be accepted. It is acceptable if the envelope contains other official documents awarded by the institution (e.g. degree certificate and diploma supplement). However, no other enclosures can be submitted with the transcript of records (or mark sheet or result card).
Degree certificates must always be awarded by the main university or a college with degree-awarding status. Degree certificates granted by affiliated colleges will not be accepted. The copy of the degree certificate must be officially certified and can be submitted by the applicant.
