Vericant logo
Vericant helps over 50 independent schools qualify their Chinese applicants with face-to-face video interviews. We believe there is no substitute for an in-person interview with each applicant. However, time zones, distance and application volume makes this difficult to interview all of your Chinese applicants. We’ve changed that. Unlike agents and consultants, we do not help students to apply to schools nor do we help schools recruit students. Instead, we are a 3rd party organization providing a reliable platform for admission officers to evaluate their Chinese applicant’s spoken English ability and non-cognitive skills. To learn how your admissions office can benefit from accepting the Vericant interview, please visit
