Education Verification Services

Conducting education verification checks is vital if you require a certain minimum standard of education, a specific degree subject or grade to perform a certain role within your business. Even if an employee’s qualifications aren’t important for the role, it’s a great indication of their integrity if they lie about their grades.

Education verification checks show the highest percentage of discrepancies than any other check we conduct. Discrepancies range from completely fake degree certificates and embellishment of grades to purchasing degrees from a diploma mill (also known as a degree mill).

Our extensive in-house language capabilities mean we can conduct education verifications in any country.
