Certification of Recognition / Validation of Foreign Certificates

JGU will only accept applications based on foreign certificates including a certification of recognition / validation of the documents submitted.

You may download the required form ("Application for the Recognition / Validation of Foreign Certificates") under the link on the right side.

The certification of recognition / validation can be issued only after the processing fee of € 60 is transfered to our account (no checks, credit cards or banknotes are accepted). The processing of the recognition / validation generally takes about 6 weeks.

Please note that copies of documents must be properly translated and officially certified. If you do not provide officially certified copies, your application will not be processed and will be rejected for formal reasons. In this case you will have to submit a new application for recognition and the recognition fee will be due for payment once again.

Information on the evaluation of non-German qualifications can be found on ANABIN, the information portal for official recognition of educational qualifications from foreign countries.
