The British Council's verification service is provided to individuals who are UK educational qualification holders.
We verify all education, training, and professional awards, including certificates, degrees, and diplomas, at all levels issued by any accredited UK institution or organisation.
Verification is a confirmation that a photocopy (Black and white) is a true copy of an original document.
The British Council reserves the right to reject certification of any document if the programme or institution is not recognised by the UK education board, if the document is found to be too old, altered, or defaced in any way or if there is any question regarding the originality of the document
|New changes in verification process for Qatar. Embassy of State of Qatar in Sri Lanka and MOFA now requires, irrespective of the university or institution, a letter of authenticity in a preferred format. More information http://bit.ly/2gXdbTm|
