Legalisation of the original diploma (“Apostille”)

The Bachelor, Master, DEEM/LDM and Doctorate diplomas issued by the University of Fribourg bear handwritten signatures certified by the State Chancellery of the Canton of Fribourg.

If necessary, it is possible to have the authenticity of a signature on an official document certified by an “Apostille” (also known as “over-legalisation”). The State Chancellery is the only competent authority for this formality and performs it based on a certified copy of the diploma.
