Documents to bring with you:

  • certified copy of the official transcripts for the school-leaving certificate (maturità, CESS, Abitur, baccalauréat, etc.)
  • if the transcripts do not mention the completion of the school-leaving certificate, certified copy of the diploma or of any other document certifying the successful completion of the school-leaving certificate
  • identification (ID card or passport)
  • certified translations of the documents which aren’t in French, English, German, or Italian

Only the final transcripts must be provided, not intermediary grade sheets (annual, semestral, trimestral, etc.).

Copies must be certified by the public authority (local or national) in charge of delivering the results and/or the school-leaving certificate. In the case of a private school, the stamp and/or signature of the public authority in charge of accreditation is required.

Students accepted to a Bachelor’s program on the basis of a foreign University education must provide a copy of their University transcripts certified by the University, as well as a document certifying the successful completion of that education if necessary.

No matriculation can take place without these documents!
