This service has been tailored to the following customer groups who often receive applications from students who gained their qualification from international academic institutions.

  • Professional Certification Bodies in Nigeria
  • Postgraduate Schools in Nigeria
  • Government Regulatory and Licensing Bodies in Nigeria

The Challenge

Failure to verify foreign documents and information in today’s Nigeria can be a huge risk particularly with the shrinking geographical boundaries and increased use of information technology. In addition to this, misrepresentation of facts and falsification of documents have become common practices mainly because these credentials appear foreign. The primary purpose of this solution is to vet foreign gained credentials for genuineness and correctness.  The verification service covers and answers these key questions:

  • Is the awarding institution authorized in their country
  • Is the awarding institution authorized to issue the specific course degree
  • Is the information on the credential authentic and valid
  • Is the foreign degree comparable to what obtains in Nigeria

ETX-NG provides the opportunity to incorporate primary-source verification—the highest standard in credentials verification and the best protection against fraudulent credentials—into the evaluation of their applicants’ credentials.

Solution Summary

Primary source verification is, by definition, confirming authenticity directly with the source. For a credential (qualification), this means confirming that the credential is authentic directly with the international institution that issued the credential. It is a best practice and the best protection against fraudulent credentials. ETX-NG’s rigorous primary-source verification process for international credentials is best placed to give the required assurance needed to proceed with the subjects. It also provides assurance to organizations worldwide that the international credentials of their students and staff are authentic

Course by Course Evaluation

The course by course credential evaluation report identifies and describes each diploma/certificate and provides an equivalency for each. It indicates a description of periods of education, courses, credit hours, grades and degrees, as well as overall academic performance in terms of the educational system in Nigeria.

A course by course report is usually required for applications to postgraduate programs, students interesting in transferring schools before completing their degrees and professional licensing board applications.

Document by Document Evaluation

The document by document credential evaluation report describes and lists the educational institution(s) attended and the education credential(s) earned in a foreign country and states their Nigeria equivalence (e.g. Bachelor, Master, Doctorate, etc.) A document by document evaluation report is usually required for new graduate admissions into universities or for employment and immigration purposes.
