Transcript of Records and Diploma Supplement
In many cases you only need to submit Transcript of records of your current studies, still check if the Diploma supplement of previous studies is also needed from the relevant competition call.
1. Transcript of records (of current studies)
Transcript of records is almost always mandatory in applying for any grant. Students can order transcript of records from the Dean’s office of the faculty they are admitted to, in either Estonian or English. The transcript must always be printed on the faculty letterhead and it must also show the average grade. When asking for a transcript of records, applicants should take into account that this may take a couple of days.
2. Diploma supplement of the previous study level
In the case of grants meant for the Master’s and Doctoral students, it is often required to submit a copy of their diploma from previous level of study and translation. Please note that if this is required, as stated in a particular announcement, you need to know that for applying at UT a simple copy is accepted. In the case you get selected for study abroad and your documents need to be submitted (or you submit) to the university abroad, there may be a requirement to submit a certified copy of the diploma (diploma supplement), not just a single copy.
For a simple copy, one can print it out from the DreamApply system, if a student does not have a copy. To have a copy certified, one needs to consider that certifying takes time. One can have their copy certified by notary, for example.
