Document Verification Service 

Whether you are applying to an institution in the UK for further study, or preparing for a UK qualification locally or elsewhere in the region, you will need to submit proof of your academic qualifications. 

One of the requirements from UK education institutions is the submission of verified academic certificates as an alternative to sending the original copies. 

The British Council can provide you with the verification of these documents. To enable us to do this, you will need to bring your original certificates along with the notarial translation if your academic certificate is not in English.

We will produce a cover letter stating that we have seen the original copies of the academic documents and we will stamp the British Council seal on the photocopies of the documents, to certify them as true copies. British Council, however, will not be responsible for the authenticity of the certificate or qualification. 

1. What do you need to bring? 

  • Your Original Academic Certificate from your hosting institution 
  • Official or notarial translation of your Academic Certificate into English, if your Academic certificate is not issued in English (or) Certified True Copy of your Academic Certificate
