 Legalisation of diplomas of higher education is performed by an organisational unit of a higher education institution authorised to confer an academic degree of a doktor (doctor) in a given field of science or in a given field of art providing education in an area corresponding to the field of study completed abroad. 

More details on the recognition of foreign education in Poland can be found at the website of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

Legalisation is a confirmation of a formal compliance of the document with the law of the country of issuance or the authenticity of the signatures and seals the document bears.

Legalisation of educational credentials is performed by a Polish consulate or educational authorities in the state, within the territory of which, or in the educational system of which, the Diploma was issued.

IMPORTANT: Legalisation cannot be performed when in Poland.
