The process of verifying an applicant's educational qualification starts with collecting information about the degree and institution that the candidate claims that they have attended. The documented education institution is then contacted to verify the authenticity of the candidate claims. 

This information helps in determining whether or not a person is qualified for the position at hand. This process can be time-consuming if done manually, however it can help employers save time by avoiding hiring candidates who are not qualified based on their education.

How long does education verification take?

It depends on the number of documents that are required for this process. It can take anywhere from a few days to weeks, depending on the complexity of the verification process. However, if you are in a hurry or need to verify your candidates academic credentials quickly, you can use an automated education verification process and service.
