Update on recent CDGDC changes
As CDGDC is unable to provide degree certificate verification to third party entities as of 1 January 2020, we are temporarily making this service unavailable. Individuals who have been impacted by this change will be contacted individually by email with further advice specific to their application.
Chinese Qualifications Verification
VETASSESS is authorised by the China Higher Education Student Information and Career Center (CHESICC) to verify Chinese education qualifications. We verify Chinese qualification documents obtained from the People's Republic of China (P.R. China) (excludes qualifications achieved in Macau and/or Hong Kong) issued after 1981. Please note this service verifies the authenticity of Chinese educational documents. However, it does not compare Chinese qualifications with Australian qualifications for skills assessment purposes. The VETASSESS skills assessment is a separate service.
Applying for VETASSESS skills assessment for migration purposes
If you wish to include any qualifications awarded from P.R. China as part of your VETASSESS Skills Assessment application, you are required to apply for both the Chinese Qualifications Verification report and a Skills Assessment at the same time. We recommend that you apply for both the Chinese Qualification Verification report and a Skills Assessment as we cannot conduct your Skills Assessment without first receiving a Chinese Qualification Verification report from the relevant ministries in P.R. China.
Who can apply?
This service is available for individuals or migration agents seeking a Skills Assessment for migration. The service may also be used by government bodies, educational institutions and business corporations seeking verification/ authenticity of qualifications achieved in P. R. China for their interest purposes.
Which qualifications do we verify?
VETASSESS is authorised to verify the following education documents:
- Higher education Certificates of Graduation
- Secondary level and post-secondary level Certificates of Graduation
- Academic transcripts of higher education
- Certificates of high school graduation examination
- Records of high school graduation examination
For verification of higher education degrees (i.e. Bachelor, Master and Doctoral degree certificates), please contact China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) directly.
