Certified Copies

What is a certified copy?

A certified copy of a document is one which has been stamped, signed and dated to confirm that it is a true copy of the original by an authorised person.

People who are authorised to certify documents include:

  • your current or previous educational institution (in which case documents must be sent in a sealed envelope directly from the institution)
  • An IIE MSA registered education agent
  • An IIE MSA staff member
  • A solicitor
  • A commissioner for declarations
  • A government official
  • A notary public

To request certification of a copy of a document you need to take both the original document and the copy to your chosen authorised official.

Certified copies and online applications

Soft (electronic) versions of your certified copies must be submitted with your online applications. If requested, we may need a certified hard (paper) copy of your results documents before we can make you a full offer of a course place. This will only be applicable to certain students.

International students must supply a certified “hard” copy of:

  • your results documents
  • your English test results (if you have these)

You will need to post these documents to us as soon as you can. Quote your student or application number in a covering letter and send to:

Allow two-three weeks for you documents to be received.
