The certificate will state the key facts of the original document, determined by the purpose of its use. The information given will be certified with the official stamp of the University of Turku and with a signature by a member of the University staff.      

The certificate and the certified copy are certified to be in accordance with the original documents kept in the central archives of the University of Turku. The information in the original documents will not be compared with the information in any system, for example the study administration data system.
