Employers in Qatar asked to verify employee certificates

Supreme Education Council (SEC) has urged employers to ensure they are not hiring people with fake education certificates.

The advice came in the context of an investigative report by New York Times about a company allegedly issuing fake university certificates to applicants worldwide, including the Gulf.

None of the universities mentioned in the report is included in SEC’s accreditation list, the council said in a statement yesterday. Over 3,000 people have obtained certificates from over 70 fake universities, according to the report.

SEC said it usually updates the list of universities where Qataris are enrolled under its scholarship programme and issues another list as a guide for Qataris seeking education on their own.

The list on SEC website includes 800 universities for scholarship students and 2,500 for the other segment. They have been selected from international universities, said the statement.
