Registered FCDO Apostille Service
Degree certificates are legalised when you need to provide evidence of your qualifications to a person or organisation in another country.
Applying for a job in another country often requires the legalisation of your degree certificate or other qualifications. We can legalise all academic documents from GCSE results to PHD certificates. We can also legalise professional or vocational training documents. Our fully inclusive service will ensure your document is legalised quickly and correctly.
In many circumstances we can include your transcript and other certificates by collating documents into sets. This can save you money if you have many documents that need to be used in one country.
It is common practice to legalise a copy of a degree certificate (please see the below notes regarding how we make a certified copy). Legalising a qualification document with an apostille permanently marks the document so where possible we recommend we produce a certified copy. If you are not sure if a certified copy of your document can be issued with the apostille we recommend that you contact the authority requesting the apostille from you. In some countries they ask for all academic documents to be processed as originals. Colombia typically request originals whilst an increasing number of documents for Arab countries are now issued with the apostille on the original document.
For us to make a certified copy of a degree certificate we must either see the original degree certificate in our office or we must contact the issuing university to verify the copy is legitimate. Verifying a degree certificate we have not seen the original of adds additional time and cost to the processing of the document. Please contact us for further information if you do not want to send us the original degree certificate. An alternative option is for you to have a UK solicitor local to you to make a certified copy to send to us, this means we do not need to see the original as your solicitor is verifying the copy. You must ensure your solicitor certifies the copy correctly and allow extra processing time for your solicitor to be contacted as they may not be on the database of recognised signatures for the issue of the apostille. If we make the certified copy this delay will not occur.
For advice on getting your university or college documents issued with the apostille do not hesitate to contact us. We can legalise many different types of academic and training certificates just so long as they have been legitimately issued in the UK by a recognised source or organisation.
