Nostrification / Recognition

According to the Regulation of the Minister of Education and Science on the Nostrification of School Certificates and Maturity Certificates Obtained Abroad (April 6, 2006) any school certificate obtained abroad must be legalized in the country in which it was issued and then presented to the local educational authority (kuratorium oswiaty) in Poland in order to be nostrified/recognised.

Your documents must contain a clause confirming that their holders have access to higher education institutions in their own country. So such a certificate will be required. Without it the local educational authority may reject your documents. If this happens you will have to discontinue your study.

Nostrification of the same certificate obtained abroad can be performed only once. The nostrification certificate keeps its validity only together with the original certificate obtained abroad or its duplicate.



Degree Legalization

On October 5, 1961 the several nations joined to create the simplified method of legalizing documents through the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents.

If your country accepts the Apostille (also called Apostille Certificate or Certificate) as a form of international document legalization your degree must be certified by Designated Competent Authorities. On the bases of this certification you will get an APOSTILLE STICKER affixed by the Polish Consulate in your country.


Visa Requirements

Coming to Poland you need a visa, a residence permit, "Karta Polaka"  or other document legalizing your stay on the territory of Poland.
