If at the time of filing a request for recognition and application, you completed your studies, but have not yet received documents on your education, you need to submit a letter from your school or university about the successful completion of education program and the approximate timeframe for your receipt of official documents on graduation. If the specified letter is not in Russian, then a translation of the letter into Russian, certified by a notary, is also required.

Notarized translations can be made in the country of your residence. However, if necessary, at the request of the Admission Board, it might be necessary to provide a new translation of the document, notarized by a Russian notary or at the consulate of the Russian Federation.

Please note that depending on the country of issue of the documents on education, a legalization procedure may be required. This could be:

The «apostille» stamp is carried out by the competent authorized bodies of the country of issue of the document (for example, the Department of Education, the Ministry of Education) and affixed on the original document or on a separate sheet attached to the document.

2) consular legalization, i.e. two-stage legalization of the document by the competent foreign affairs bodies of the country of issue of the document (for example, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and its certification by the consular services of the Russian Federation in the country of issue of the document.
