Documents verification

How to get it:

First of all, please check the required study documentation in order to know for which documents you will need to provide proof of authenticity.

Common verification methods:

- Legalization (affixed on the foreign document by the competent Italian diplomatic-consular authority);
- Apostille (for contracting parties of the Hague Apostille Convention of 5 October 1961);
- Statement of Verification issued by an ENIC-NARIC center (usually it only confirms the authenticity of the study qualification, not the content of the transcript of records);
- Vidimazione (for study qualifications issued by the Holy See).

For some countries (e.g. Turkey, India, Pakistan, Ukraine, …) there are official and recognized platforms for the digital verification of the study qualifications. Our University can directly verify the authenticity of the qualifications through these platforms. For other countries, however, students must register on specific platforms and/or request the sharing of their data. These services may have a fee that the students must bear. We invite you to provide us with information on the available verifications methods in the country which issued your study qualification, and any data essential for the verification.

Some Universities provide on their own websites verifications services for degrees and transcripts of records, while other Universities may use third parties for sending electronic transcript of records (e-transcripts, national students clearinghouse, Digitary, Truecopy, Parchment etc.). For the latter, the documents must be sent directly to and uploaded on Apply@UniTo, together with the service request receipt.

Please note:

- our University will not accept the sharing of personal credentials (username and password) for the purpose of logging in the applicant’s personal University profile;
- verification methods requiring any form of payment by the University will not be accepted;
- our University will not directly contact the Institutions that issued the documents;
- if it is not possible to verify the requested documentation online, the candidate must provide one of the common proofs of authenticity (legalization/Apostille or Statement of Verification), as stated above;
- the following countries are exempted from legalization/apostille: Austria, Belgium, Danimark, Estonia, Francia, Germania, Irlanda, Lettonia.

Here are some examples of accepted methods of verification, by no means this should be considered an exhaustive and complete list.
