Notes about
APOSTILLE Requirements For newly admitted students

Since July 14, 2007, the Republic of Korea has been part of the 1961 Hague Convention abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. The Convention provides for the simplified certification or public (including notarized) documents to be used in countries that have joined the convention. The Apostille ensures that public documents issued in one signatory country will be recognized as valid in another signatory country.

Apostille certificates are to be submitted within 15 days after their enrollment at UNIST. For information regarding how to get an Apostille, please refer to the website

A. Newly admitted students from countries which are signatories to the convention must meet the following requirements: 1. Official certificates (transcripts, diplomas, etc.) should be submitted with the attachment of Apostille”.
2. All documents should be in English. Document in another language should be accompanied by a notarized English translation.

B. Admitted students from countries which are NOT signatories to the convention and do not recognize the apostille must meet the following requirements:
1. Official certificates must be legalized by a Korean consular officer in the country which issued them.
2. Applicants from these countries should submit the official certificates with the attachment of an Authentication issued by the Korean embassy or consulate.
3. All documents should be in English. Document in another language should be accompanied by a notarized English translation.
