NOTE: Recognition of secondary certificates and diplomas

Most certificates do not require undergoing any additional recognition procedures in Polish governmental offices since they are recognized by virtue of law. If your document was issued in one of the countries enlisted below, you do not need to apply for a recognition decision. (Please remember that the document still has to prove your eligibility to undertake studies in the issuing country!)

The following certificates are recognized by virtue of law:

  1. Issued by schools or education institutions operating within the education framework of a member state of the European Union, member state of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), member state of European Free Trade Association (EFTA)—a party to the Agreement on European Economic Area, entitling its holder to apply for university admission in those countries (Article 93(1)(1) of the Polish Act on the Education System).
  2. International Baccalaureate diplomas and European Baccalaureate certificates.
  3. Certificates recognized on the basis of an international agreement signed by Poland with other countries. Detailed information about such international agreements is available on the Ministry of Science and Higher Education website (in Polish only).

If the certificate does not fall within any of the above-mentioned categories, it has to undergo the administrative procedure for its recognition as a document which gives its holder right to undertake higher education, by a decision issued by the Education Officer (kurator oświaty). For the Jagiellonian University, the appropriate education office is Małopolskie Kuratorium Oświaty in Kraków (website available in Polish only). The decision should be obtained by the end of the first semester.

If you have been granted a nostrification before 31 March 2015 and your certificate does not fall within any of the above-mentioned categories, please include the certificate of nostrification in your set of required documents submitted to the university.
