Australian Educational Documents

Australian educational documents are not public documents and cannot be apostilled or legalised standing alone without certification.


Educational documents may include...

  • University or Tertiary Degrees | Diplomas | Certificates | Acedemic Transcripts
  • TAFE | Trade Certificates | Transcripts
  • Higher School | Matriculation Certificates
  • Secondary School Semester Reports | Principals' Statements

An Australian public tertiary educational/university document must be certified and signed by the central Student Administrative office of the issuing University as a "true and accurate" record before the document can be submitted to DFAT for issue of an Apostille or Authentication Certificate. You will need to contact your university's Student Administration to arrange this processing.

Alternatively, you might deliver to us your original Degree/Testamur and we will attend to online verification and stamping for you after notarising/certifying a copy, at an additional cost of $150.00. A signed  Authority from you is required; a blank Authority form will be emailed to you for completion for email  return to us should you wish to proceed in this manner.
