Step Two

Step two entails sending all of the required documents to our admissions office by post. Unattested certificates are accepted for the registration; however, the attested documents should be airmailed to the office of admissions before entering the final semester of your studies. You will receive the details by email once you have finished the online application process.

NOTE: Attestation is a mandatory requirement to obtain the M.A.I.S. degree. Therefore, we recommend that students complete it well in advance to avoid any complications later.

Required documents:

  • Attested photocopy of your bachelor’s degree.
    Note: Your bachelor degree must be notarized by an authorized local notary public and it must be clearly shown on the scan sent to IOU.
    The notarized copy of your document that you will post to our admissions office must itself bear the notary stamps and signatures. Photocopy of your notarized document is not acceptable to be sent to us by post.
    Students are given time (until the completion of the degree) to submit the attested documents. The attested documents must be submitted in order to receive your degree.
  • Photocopy of photo ID. If you don’t have a passport, you may submit any other official ID with your photo (national identity card, driver’s license, etc.)

NOTE: Please mention your IOU student ID on the back of your documents such as certificates or photo ID for easier tracking and recognition.

The criteria for acceptance is:
