Post 1992 Matrics.

South African Matric (Grade 12) and Senior Certificate qualifications are verified through Umalusi. MIE and Umalusi have entered a formal agreement for verification of endorsed matric Senior Certificates (Grade 12). Of real value is the strict service level agreed for feedback on these matric Senior Certificates (Grade 12).

MIE is integrated into the Umalusi backend systems to make the verifications process more efficient and timeous.

Pre 1992 Matrics.

These are verified at the various Provincial Departments of Education. Through extensive relationship building with these departments, MIE is able to verify Senior/Secondary certificates as well as archived certificates at agreed turn around times.

Southern African Tertiary qualifications from 25 universities (certificates, diplomas, degrees, honours, masters, Doctorates) are verified via the National Qualifications Register (NQR®). The NQR® greatly increases the speed and accuracy at which a verification of a qualification can be obtained.

Additionally, MIE sources tertiary qualification verifications from universities world-wide. MIE’s expertise has resulted in assisting clients globally in mitigating 50% of risk associated with global qualifications.
