DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR ADMISSIONS

International candidates submit the following documents:

1. Candidate’s application form.

2. Personal questionnaire generated from the Internet Recruitment System.

3. Confirmation that the applicant has a fluent command of English language.

ATTENTION: Consulate of the Republic of Poland residing in a country in which the candidate’s certificate of secondary education was issued must legalise the documents in order to make their recognition in Poland possible. If the candidate’s certificate of secondary education was issued in a country which is a party of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, the legalisation process is performed in a form of apostille located on or enclosed to the document. According to a proper international treaty, if a foreign certificate of secondary education may be accepted as equivalent to Polish certificate of secondary education, the recognition is not required. In this case, it is sufficient to provide the certificate with apostille affixed thereto. International Baccalaureate Diplomas (IB) as well as European Baccalaureate Diplomas (EB) are equivalent to Polish certificate of secondary education. In this case, the recognition process is not required. The recognition of university graduation diplomas is performed by a council of a basic organisational UMCS unit, authorised to grant doctorate degree.
