In most cases, the
school where you received your diploma will be able to provide you with a
certified copy of the documents. In other cases, for example if you live
abroad or if your school does not exist anymore, a notary will be able to help

university which shows us the courses you have taken. In the Transcript of Records, you will find the name of the courses you have attended and the grade

codes and number of ECTS credits awarded are usually also mentioned.
Please note that if your transcript is not in German, English, French or Dutch, we request an official and certified translation into one of these languages.
