apostille copy degree

Selecting our degree verification service is popular with customers that do not have immediate access to their original degree certificate or the original document is lost. If you have a copy of your degree certificate you can send this to us by post or email with the completed consent form. On receipt we will contact the college or university to confirm your qualification and period of study.

When only providing a copy of your degree we will also require a completed consent form. This must be completed by the person detailed on the qualification and contain their real signature. We cannot accept consent forms if they are not signed correctly.The consent form gives the university permission to release details of your qualification to us.

Occasionally we may also need further proof of study or additional communication for the college/university.

How much does it cost?

The fee to verify, certify and issue the apostille on a copy of a UK degree certificate when we have not seen the original is £144. Included within this service is a verification fee of £50. If the college or university cannot verify your qualification we cannot refund this fee. If your document cannot be legalised with the apostille we will refund the apostille fee only. Contacting universities and college takes a lot of time and administration. We have to pay for some of the searches and these fees are not refunded if your degree cannot be confirmed.

We can verify your documents for you.
