You must bring your original documents with you
When arriving to BTH, you must be able to show your originals. This signifies that you are obligated to bring all of your original academic documents with you.

Will application documents be returned?
Normally no documents submitted with your application will be returned, which is why you should never send your originals to Universityadmissions’s postal address: University Admissions in Sweden.
