Electronically Verifiable Educational Documents

The University of Turku accepts electronic educational documents that can be verified using an electronic verification service on the awarding institution’s website.

  • The entire document must be verifiable using the service: the service must show the exact same content as the document you submitted.
  • If the service verifies only parts of the document, we do not accept the document as officially certified. Instead, submit the original according to country specific instructions.

Please note that we cannot guarantee that we will accept verification services in languages other than English, Finnish or Swedish. If the electronic document verified by the service is not available in English, Finnish or Swedish, you must submit an official translation of the original document as well.

University of Turku reserves the right to evaluate each electronic document and verification service case by case. If we cannot verify the required information, you must submit the document following the general instructions and possible country specific instructions.

If your documents have been received by the University of Turku in electronic format and verified they will be treated as originals and you do not need to provide a paper version of the documents.
