If you have completed or are completing your degree in India, 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 Admissions Finland 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 Admissions Finland directly from the awarding institution. Please note that regular photocopies are not sufficient, even if they are sent by the awarding institution. University Admissions Finland only accepts official documents.
If your university or college in India is unable to send the transcript, mark sheet or result card to University Admissions Finland, 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 Admissions Finland. 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 be awarded either by the main university or a college (autonomous or affiliated). 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 a transcript of records (or mark sheet or result card).
University Admissions Finland also accepts electronic transcripts submitted through a few recognized sources, such as Truecopy. For information on which electronic transcript sending services are accepted by University Admissions Finland, please seeElectronic Transcripts. If your institution uses one of the acceptable services, you can request for your official transcript of records to be electronically sent to University Admissions Finland. Please note that when using an official electronic service like Truecopy, University Admissions Finland only needs to receive the transcript once, contrary to normal document requirements.
Degree certificates must always be awarded by the main university. 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.
