General requirements for educational documents

It depends on the country where you are graduating and/or the study level you are applying for.

Applying for Bachelor's programmes

  • You can apply with current grades, if you are graduating in one of the member countries of EU, EEA or OECD, one of the member countries of CIS (Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgystan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan), in Ukraine or Georgia, or if you are graduating from an IB Diploma programme or with a General Certificate of Education with A-level exams.

    Applicants from these countries and programmes who are graduating in the upcoming spring/summer and having their graduation documents issued later than the application deadline should electronically submit their most recent grade sheet or transcript with results for all higher secondary school years (including grades/results for the last autumn semester) by the application deadline, 15 April. The grade sheet or transcript should be supplemented by an official statement from the issuing school or university indicating current enrollment and expected graduation date. Admitted candidates are required to post the certified copies of their graduation documents as soon as these have been issued. NB! Please note that certified copies and translations (if applicable) of your final official graduation documents must reach us by the end of July at the latest.

  • If you are graduating in some other country than one of those specified above then you cannot apply with current grades and can only apply if you have already received your final graduation documents. In case you cannot upload a copy of your final graduation documents by the application deadline 15 April then we encourage you to apply next year, once you have received all required graduation documents.

Appyling for Master's programmes

All applicants from all countries applying for master's level programmes who are graduating in the upcoming spring/summer can apply on condition that they will submit their most recent official transcript (including grades/results for the last autumn semester) by the application deadline and in case they get admitted, their final official graduation documents by the end of July at the latest.

You are required to submit (upload to your DreamApply application and, in case you get admitted, also send by post) certified hard copies of the original documents (unless instructed otherwise in your country-specific requirements below). By certified copies we mean copies that are certified by the issuing institution or by a notary as true copies of the originals. Simple copies are never accepted. Also, please note that for some countries special document requirements may apply, therefore be sure to check our country-specific requirements below. 

After arriving to Tartu all admitted students are also required to present their original education documents to the Admissions Office (unless these were sent directly from the issuing institution).

Please note that the University of Tartu does not return documents sent to the Admissions Office during the application process nor issue certified copies of the submitted documents.

Educational documents that you are submitting with your online application have to be both in the original language and in English, translation certified. As certified translations we consider translations done by a sworn translator and/or certified by a notary as true translations of the original, or official translations made by the issuing institution (school or university) itself. Also, in the last case, if your institution issues official documents in English, then these will suffice and documents in the original language are not needed.

As certified documents/copies we consider document copies that are certified by the authorities of the issuing institution (school, university, exam centre etc) bearing their original signature, stamp etc, or certified by a notary as true copies of the originals. NB! For some countries special certification requirements exist, therefore be sure to also check our country-specific requirements below.

As certified translations we consider 1) official translations made by the issuing institution (school, university, exam centre etc) bearing their original signature, stamp etc, or 2) translations certified by a sworn translator or notary.

For the evaluation of applicants' education documents (qualifications) our Admissions Office works in close cooperation with the Estonian ENIC/NARIC Centre. Should questions arise regarding the suitability of your previous qualifications or access to higher education in Estonia, the University of Tartu has a right to send your educational documents to the Estonian ENIC/NARIC Centre for further evaluation at any point of the admission procedure. NB! Applicants themselves do not have to send the documents to the Estonian ENIC/NARIC Centre, this is done by our Admissions Office. Please note that the admission decision received from the University of Tartu is valid only after a positive evaluation decision is received from the ENIC/NARIC Centre. In case of negative evaluation decision the University of Tartu is obliged to withdraw the study place offer and/or cancel the enrollment. The University of Tartu is not liable for possible material or non-material damage arising from the revocation of an admission decision.
