Ø Academic-related documents should be authenticated by a Apostille or consular legalization

Regarding Apostille
Apostille is a certification process that authenticates documents. Under the Hague convention, the member states have agreed to recognize public documents issued by other signatory countries if those public documents are authenticated by the attachment of an internationally recognized form of authentication known as an apostille. If candidates are not from the signatory states, they instead need to submit academic documents authenticated by consular legalization stamps. Chinese students can obtain notarized academic documents at the Confucian Institute in Seoul. For more information, please visit http://www.cis.or.kr/. Notarization will be considered as valid as consular legalization.
