Fake degrees: Exposing Canadians with phoney credentials
« on: May 07, 2019, 07:37:50 pm »
Does the apostille eliminate these kinds of people from teaching?

In addition, American research shows that more than half of all PhD's in the US are fake.

Canadians don't have an apostille process, the local Korean consulates verify (stamp/sign off on) notarized degree copies. Most consulates used to ask for transcripts as well to confirm courses and graduation, which I'm assuming these diploma mills don't provide, but that's changed over the years. Vancouver still seems to be the most strict.

In the US, an apostille in no way verifies that a degree came from an accredited university.

I think personality and experience play a much bigger role in one's ability to teach in Korea than the large majority of degrees foreign teachers have.

  I read this comment on another forum: "There is a huge amount of snobbery about degrees in Japan and Korea."

But TEFL qualifications play an even bigger role.

Maybe domestically but not when it comes to esl.

They should discriminate against online qualifications, in my view. Too many of those setups require minimal effort and are hard to check. Its a racket.
