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

A certified translation or a certified copy is an official translation or copy of a document which is issued or legally attested by a public agency, an auditing agency or any other public authorities (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. For your application at the Abbe School of Photonics you just have to upload certified translations of required documents, if they are not available in English or German language.

All documents marked with an asterisk (*) in the list of required documents  have to be sent/given 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.
