In foreign countries, copies can also be certified by the German Embassy, a German Consulate or the responsible public institutions of the respective country.
Please make sure the official stamp on your certification includes an emblem from the certification office. A simple text stamp will not suffice.

It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to have his/her documents completed and sent in time. For non-EU applicants, please visit Uni-Assist for further information.
- Reconsignment of documents
Application documents will not be returned. Please do not send originals, only send certified copies. If you require your documents to be returned, please enclose a self-addressed envelope of sufficient size plus international reply coupon.
