So I need to send my documents to my recruiter (based in Korea), from the UK. Any suggestions of which courier to use? I thought I could just use the Royal Mail, but they can only track my parcel whilst it's still inside the UK. Since my recruiter has requested a tracking number from me, I assume this won't do.

I've had a quick browse through the private couriers (Fedex, parcelforce etc), and they all seem to be charging an arm and a leg, whilst the RM was only going to charge 10 Confused How much should I be expecting to pay for this?

Royal mail EMS works fine.

Just use fedex. It's pricey, but getting all new docs costs more.

My school required FEDEX but I was allowed to use DHL (little cheaper). I would use a professional courier for those documents.

Sorry if this was asked and answered somewhere else, but I'm wondering if it is really normal to have to send your ORIGINAL diploma to the school you will be working for?! This seems scary, for a lack of a better word.

NO. Do NOT send your original.
The school does not need it.
The MOE does not need it.
Immigration does not need it.

Send the certified COPY with the apostille affixed to the copy.

If you send your original you WILL lose it (immigration does NOT return them).
