Recognition of Foreign Education Documents

IKBFU is authorised to independently grant recognition to foreign documents of education and (or) qualification for the purposes of student admission

For preliminary evaluation of the foreign educational documents and assessment of the possibility of admission to the University, you may contact the Admissions Office by email:

If the evaluation of the foreign educational documents is necessary, the applicant must submit the following set of documents:

Document confirming the identity of the holder of the education document (translated into Russian, if necessary)
Duly certified translation of the foreign educational document and its annex, including translation of the seals

Please check the accuracy and consistency of the spelling of the surname, first name(s) and patronymic (if any) in the passport, visa (if available) and the translations. In case of even one letter not coinciding, a duplicate copy of the documents or a reference from an educational institution or embassy confirming the authenticity of the documents will be required

In case the applicant has changed their surname, e.g. following a marriage, supporting documents, e.g. a copy and translation (if necessary) of the marriage certificate, must be provided

Any alterations to the documents will hinder their authentication. If any alterations are present, official duplicates from the issuing educational institution will be required

Please note that documents issued in a certain countries require general (consular) or simplified (apostille) legalisation
Please check in advance whether the legalisation of your educational documents is necessary

Additional information on the procedure of recognition of foreign educational documents is available on the website of the National Accreditation Agency
