I got my degree certificate notarised the other day at a notary public in case I apply for a job in Korea, and you need a notarised and apostilled degree to get a visa there. Interestingly, I was searching for the best price in my area which is the Midlands and the first solicitor said he could sign it but not verify it as real or something for £80 but if I wanted him to certify it as real, he would have to phone up the university registrar and then it would be £100. I thought to myself, I ent paying that so I looked for another notary public and I found one who said £30. He has two offices, one in Birmingham and another in Coventry and he goes to Coventry in the evenings. So I went in the evening with my original certificate and he signed it as a true copy of the original, put his seal on it and stamped it with his address. No phoning up the registrar or anything like that. Luckily mine is a true original degree cert, but I just wonder the authenticity of the degrees this cheaper solicitor signs.
