To be admitted to training at the Russian State Hydrometeorological University students from some countries need to go through the process of legalization and recognition of educational documents. Depending on the presence or absence of an agreement on mutual recognition between the Russian Federation and a foreign country, where a student comes from, the process of legalization and recognition of educational documents is different.

The process of legalization:

 

To recognize the foreign educational documents on the territory of the Russian Federation students need to go through the process of legalization, except for countries with which the Russian Federation has an agreement on mutual recognition of education certificates. 

Legalization  is a procedure that provides the authentication of signatures, the authority of the person signing the document, the authentication of seal or stamp as well as the legal status of the document. The essence of the procedure is that the consular officer of the Russian Federation makes an inscription on the document which confirms the validity of this document.

 

Depending on the presence or absence of a special agreement between the Russian Federation and a foreign country, as well as the joining of a foreign country to the Hague conference, applicants will need to pass a procedure of consular legalization or "apostilling".
