In particular:

  1. Have you got an International Certificate? Please check if it can be recognised by UCSC!
  2. Have you already shown your International Certificate to the SeLdA Office in September?
  3. Have you got an International Language Certificate but have not received the original document yet?
  4. Have you got a High School Diploma in a foreign Language?

If you have got an International Certificate, that is to say a Certificate issued by one of the following certifiers:
