Secondary education documents
The following documents allow students to prove that they have completed Syrian general upper secondary education:
- the General Secondary Education Certificate in Arabic; and
- a translation of the diploma.
Please note: the Ministry of Education must be mentioned on the diploma. The Education Directorate of the region is always mentioned as well. If students apply for a degree programme in the Netherlands, they must show a translation of their diploma.
Higher education documents
Students can prove that they have completed a higher education programme by showing:
- a diploma or graduation certificate from the higher education institution; and
- a list of grades.
Please note: in order to apply for a Dutch degree programme, a student must provide a translation of both documents. In Syrian higher education, diplomas and lists of grades are usually issued in Arabic, but sometimes also in English.
