What does it check?
We'll check the details of an individual's academic history, both in secondary and higher education.
"We'll check that the details of an individual's academic qualifications are correct. Liaising directly with the institution(s) they attended, we'll confirm the dates they attended, the level of qualification obtained, course titles, all subjects studied and the grades achieved. We also check against a proprietary database of known bogus education providers (diploma mills) to confirm, where possible, that the awarding body is a bona fide educational institution."
