For some awards, notably in education, law, medicine and pharmacy, graduate students must submit their diploma and academic transcript to national licensing authorities. The certificate itself is a legal document (a state recognised qualification) issued with authority by the respective Ministry of Education and recognised throughout the EEA, and globally. In the UK and EEA generally, this process is managed by NARIC (National Academic Recognition Information Centre), who will conduct checks and issue a Certificate of Comparability to confirm that the diploma was was issued by the appropriate body, Occasionally certain authorities require a notarised and apostilled translation of the certificate which is managed through the appropriate Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The apostille makes portability simpler under the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, 5th October 1961.

Please contact your programme leader who can advise you in detail about the charges and processing times. Students are advised to contact these authorities to confirm what additional paperwork is needed to minimise costs, and ensure that the process is managed efficiently.
