    • If you are currently studying, then provide an official statement of expected graduation.
    • If your degree comes from a non-EEA country, your diploma will need an apostille.
  3. Official transcript of grades from your related degree
  4. Completed Petition for the Acceptance of Degree form
  5. Completed Request for Credit Acceptance if applicable**

For degrees issued in Non-EEA countries

***The official Letter of Acceptance will be issued only after you have submitted the apostilled (or diplomatically legalized) version of your degree.  For this reason, we suggest that you make arrangements for the apostille/diplomatic legalization as soon as you have been awarded the degree as it may take time to get the apostille/diplomatic legalization.

For detailed information on apostilles, please check here.

If the country where your diploma originated is not a member of the Apostille Convention, your diploma must be diplomatically legalized by the foreign ministry of the country in which the document originated, and then by the Hungarian Consulate of your home country.
