Frequently asked questions

Is an online application enough, or do I need to send all documents by post as well?

Ask your chosen university. If the university requires certified copies, you need to submit these documents on paper in addition to your online application. These documents need to be with uni-assist with original signature and the original official stamp of the certifying institution before the deadline passes. If the university accepts online-only applications using non-certified copies of certificates, an online application with uploaded documents is sufficient.
