B 3. What do you mean by certified translations or certified documents?

A certified translation or copy is an official translation or copy of a document which is issued, or legally attested for, by a public agency, an auditing agency, or any other public authority (e.g., the Administration Office or Examination Office of your university, a notary, the embassy etc.). An apostil as proof of authenticity is not required. Certified translations of the required documents must be uploaded as part of your application to the Abbe School of Photonics if they are not available in English or German.

All those documents marked with an asterisk (*) on the list of required documents must be handed in to the Friedrich Schiller University Jena before the time of enrollment as certified copies. The documents need to be signed and stamped to be accepted as certified.
