QUALIFICATION VERIFICATION FOR TEESSIDE
Message from the University 12 October 2022, although it talks about verification of Indian qualifications all Counsellors should be aware that verification may be required for all overseas applicants.
We are aware that a lot of students and agents are constantly facing issues with the Qualification Checks. Below is the standard method of Qualifications Checks along with an alternative method to the same.
Please circulate the same amongst your students so that they are not stuck at any point.
Academic Qualifications from all overseas applicants need to be verified prior to being accepted for entry to Teesside University for the January 2023 in-take onwards. While the University’s Qualification Check portal is available to all applicants to complete this step, a range of other verification methods can be accepted to meet this offer condition.
Verification methods that will be accepted are as follows:
All applicants can pay to complete a Qual Check by going via: https://tees.ac.uk/international/qualificationcheck
TU applicants must use this portal for us to view the outcome of their qualification check. Instructions of how to complete a qualification check are detailed here:
There is a small cost (usually £25) to the applicant to complete this qualification check. Once the verification is complete the candidate will automatically receive an ImVerified wallet which digitally stores their qualification verifications and can be shared with all future employers or any other Universities they apply to.
For UG Applicant
Where Indian XIIs are being used to meet the academic entry requirement they should be verified directly with the State Board’s verification system if available.
Regularly accepted State Boards verification systems that will be used include:
- Andhra Pradesh Intermediate: https://bie.ap.gov.in/duplicatecertificate.do
- Telengana Intermediate: http://tsbie.cgg.gov.in/studentServices..do
- Gujarat Technological University: https://www.students.gtu.ac.in
CBSE Indian XII can be verified by entering roll number, Date of Birth, school code of candidate on following websites:
- http://cbseresults.nic.in (for the current year)
- http://resultsarchives.nic.in/cbseresults (for old results 2004-onwards)
All Regions – Verification Direct at Source
Where the University operates an overseas Regional Office, the Regional Office can complete a primary source verification check for the applicant directly at source with the awarding institution. There are two accepted methods:
1) Online Primary Verification where available
Check portal at: https://teesside.qualificationcheck.com/#/login/register
- Upload a screenshot of the onscreen verification to applicant record prior to the qualification verification clearance check being passed. Screenshots must include the URL web address of the verification portal.
- Add a note confirming the url of the verification service used.
2) Written Confirmation received direct from the Primary Source
- Written confirmation that the qualification is genuine may be received by e-mail from the awarding institution.
- This e-mail must be either:
- from a verifiable institutional e-mail address clearly belong to the responsible team at that institution (e.g. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org); or,
- where received from an individual’s e-mail address that individual must be verifiable as a responsible officer of the awarding institution (e.g registrar / member of registry or student records staff [and not an individual lecturer that taught the student]).
A copy of the verification in writing must be uploaded to the applicant record in e-vision prior to the qualification verification clearance check being passed. Where verification is received from an individual’s e-mail address a screenshot of a corresponding webpage confirming the individual’s role at the awarding institution should also be uploaded to the applicant record.

HOW TO APPLY - SOUTH ASIA
The application process is now simplified into 3 steps starting with Conditional Offer, followed by an Unconditional Offer and then CAS.
The University will no longer be issuing Academic Unconditional Offers and students will receive an Unconditional Offer only upon paying the deposit and clearing the Credibility Interview.
After which submission of maintenance documents will be needed for issuance of CAS. Please refer to the website for the changes in Tuition Fee.
The University will no longer be able to defer applications from one intake to the next. Every student will have to make a fresh application for each intake.
The University will not be able to accept change of course requests so we advise all of you to speak to the students and help them choose wisely.
See comments section for a list of courses which are suspended for Sept 2022.
The University requests you to make the applications for the available courses ASAP as we may suspend courses as they keep getting full.
The application process for Teesside University is via our Admissions Portal. The link for the same is as below:-
Password: lukeConnect123$ ( C is capital in password)
On the application portal you are required to complete the details of the students as per their records. Certain details have to be double checked because the same later appear on the CAS.
Kindly make sure that the email id and mobile number of the student are correct and not that of the agent. This registered email ID and Mobile number are constantly needed by the team to get in touch with the student and to add them to the WhatsApp groups, for important mails and updates related to the University.
All fields marked with a Red * are Mandatory and cannot be left blank. If in case the student does not have those please make sure you add a (.) or (–) since the form will not move ahead without these details. e.g – If the student’s passport has only the forename and not the family name, you can put a (.) or (-) in that box The Date of Birth is one of the most important detail and we request you to please double check the same with students passport. The Passport number has to be accurately filled up as this will reflect in the students CAS.
Options of the "highest level of Qualification that you currently hold"-
For all students who have completed their previous education in India the option to be selected from the dropdown menu is “Other Non-UK qualification”. (Incase the student has completed the previous education anywhere other than the home country then the same can be selected from the other options.)
The student’s past immigration History is very important, in cases where students have travelled to other countries for Education, a full detail has to be given as it is an important for the Compliance team to know.
The previous education details have to be completed from most recent to oldest. Please do make sure that all the details are filled as per the records. The Result/Grade is very important and we request everyone to calculate the percentage and fill up the same, since the international admissions get result from various boards it is quite time consuming to find out the grade percentage.(The entry criteria is clearly mentioned above, so please refrain from putting up applications that are not eligible)
If the student has IELTS as per the requirement please do mention the same on the portal. If you are attaching the IELTS scorecard the same has to reflect on Portal The complete Reference number has to be correctly filled up since we need to verify the same. We cannot consider non-verifiable results.
If the student is going for any courses which require a portfolio, please make sure that the link of the portfolio is either mentioned or a PDF version of the portfolio is attached in the documents.
Documents to be attached as PDFs
Please make sure that all documents are attached separately as per the list in PDF formats preferably. Kindly AVOID attaching a combined PDF as the admissions team is required to upload each document separately
We will accept applications and process the same only with all the below mentioned documents. It becomes very tedious to add one document after the other for one application. The only pending documents that we can wait for are letters of recommendation, final marksheets IELTS / PTE / final results and degree.
1. 10th / 12th Marksheets (A levels-O levels)
2. Relevant Marksheets (Degree, Masters)
3. Provisional / Final degree
4. Passport copy 1st and last page
5. Statement of Purpose
6. 2 x letters of recommendation.
