If you have acquired a UK qualification issued in the UK by a recognised institution, you may need certification or verification of your original documents before submitting them to the Kazakhstan/other countries’ authorities, educational institutions, or employers.
If you're planning to study in the UK, you may need to have Kazakhstani documents certified for submission to UK educational institutions.
- Certification is confirmation that a photocopy is a true copy of an original document. We can prepare for you certified copies of your original UK and Kazakhstani qualifications.
- Verification is the process of ensuring that original documents are genuine. British Council Kazakhstan can act as a verifying authority and confirm the validity of UK educational or professional documents.
