We’ve just updated our series of tips on How to Spot a Fake UK Degree.
Based on a recent case we’ve handled, we’ve added the following tip to the list:
In a recent case we handled, an enquiry returned “Not Verified”. The client, as per our normal procedure, sent us the candidate’s award certificate.
The certificate was purported to be offered by “Manchester University”.
However, this is not a valid university title. The correct university title is the “University of Manchester”. This was a dead give-away that the certificate was not awarded from the University of Manchester, nor is it a UK degree.
Always check how the university’s name appears on the certificate with what the official university refers to itself as.
There is a big difference between hiring someone from Manchester University (bogus) and someone from The University of Manchester (real)!
