Getting your documents verified
What do we mean by verified?
Verification means that your original document has been seen and the photocopy has been sworn (stamped and signed) to be a true copy of the original.
Recognised authorities are not expected to give any value to the qualification on the document. They are only required to verify that the photocopy is a “true copy of the original” presented to them without any alterations or additions.
Note about verified copies
All verified copies must be officially stamped, signed and dated by the named Higher Education Commission or authority. They must also state their full name, job title/position and contact details. We will make spot checks to confirm that this work has been carried out by them.
Verifications should be made on the front of the certificate and not the back.
We reserve the right to request additional information and/or the original documents.
If a document/statement is not in English a translation may be required. Translations must be provided by either:
· an official at an embassy or,
· consulate or,
· a recognised translator.
An embossed stamp or similar mark of authority must be on the translation.
Please check with the Student Advice Centre to see if a translation is required - some languages may not require this.
All translated documents must be accompanied by full details of:
· translator’s name
· postal address
· email address
· telephone number.
We will make spot checks to confirm that this work has been carried out by the named authority.
