Qualify your international applicants with face-to-face video interviews
When spoken English ability and non-cognitive skills are difficult to measure and verify, a growing number of schools are turning to face-to-face video interviews as an efficient, secure way to evaluate Chinese applicants.
Who we are
We are a team of China experts who are transforming admissions and assessment. We believe there is no substitute for a face-to-face interview with each applicant, and our goal is to help admissions offices to better evaluate each of their applicants regardless of distance or timezone.
Unlike agents and consultants, we do not help students to apply to schools nor do we help schools recruit students. Instead, we provide a platform for admission officers to evaluate spoken English ability and non-cognitive skills.
Vericant’s Video Interview
The Vericant Video Interview is a 10-12 minute behavioral interview designed to elicit original responses and off-the-cuff demonstrations of not just an applicant’s English ability, but also their way of thinking, maturity level, attitude and personality.
How It Works
Vericant offers interviews to your applicants in 13 Mainland China cities, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Seoul. Click to see Vericant’s map of interview cities.
We interview your applicants on camera and administer a proctored writing sample.
Next, a pair of assessors conduct a Spoken English Evaluation (SEE) of the applicant’s interview.
Afterwards, Vericant uploads the video, writing sample, and SEE score onto the secure Vericant Online Portal where admission officers may evaluate the verified applicant information.
Our view on falsified applications
We believe this issue is due to the fundamental differences between the US and Chinese education systems. In China, teacher recommendations don’t exist, Chinese emphasis on standardized testing means GPA is not a reliable academic indicator and creative essay writing is not taught in the classroom. Therefore, it is very difficult to use these materials to evaluate Chinese applicants.
