What are certified copies of academic records?

A ‘certified copy’ is a copy of an academic record which has been affixed with an original stamp/seal by the issuing institution, thus proving that it is a genuine copy of an original document issued by that institution.

Always refer to your ‘Admission Statement’ – sent to you by the faculty - for information on which academic records (certified copies) must be sent to the Admissions Office and the exact certification requirements.

If the certified copy is not in Dutch, English, French or German it must be accompanied by an official translation, drawn up by a sworn translator and bearing the original stamp and professional details of the translator.
