International Students must provide certified copies of all documents. A certified copy is a photocopy of an original document that has been endorsed (signed, dated and accompanied by an ink imprint stamp) by an authorised authority who states that it is a true copy of the original document.
Authorised authorities include:
A Justice of the Peace, Police officer, accountant, minister of religion, medical practitioner, legal practitioner, School Principal. An Excelsia staff member can also certify documents only if they have cited the original document. A detailed list of accepted authorities can be found here.
Please note: All supporting documents attached in the application process must be true and complete records. You can scan these documents and upload them in the online application form. However, you may be asked to provide original documents or original certified copies of supporting documents upon request at any time. Failure to do so may result in your candidacy being rejected. Detailed checking of supporting documents is an inherent element of our admissions process and may involve asking for verification from the original issuing authority, relevant tertiary admissions centre, or other organisation.
