About this site
World Education Services is a not-for-profit organization that provides expert credential evaluation services and conducts research about international education. WES is North Americas leading credential evaluation service, providing credential assessments for more than 70,000 foreign-educated individuals annually. WES was founded in 1974 in order to foster the integration of persons educated in foreign countries into academic and professional settings. WES maintains offices in New York, and Toronto. Credential evaluation is the process of converting foreign academic credentials into their U.S. or Canadian educational equivalents. WES produces a customized report describing each diploma or degree earned and specifying its U.S. or Canadian equivalent so your educational qualifications are more easily understood by academic institutions or employers. It also gives you an indication of what to expect when you present your educational credentials for study or employment. By providing fast, reliable service and authoritative reports, WES helps academic institutions, employers, professional licensing and certification boards, and government agencies make well-informed decisions regarding the qualifications of foreign-educated applicants. WES also provides high-quality research and training in credential evaluation and international recruitment to international education professionals through its Knowledge Resource Exchange which offers extensive online resources, the newsletter (World Education News and Reviews) and by conducting intensive workshops. WES also provides research-based consulting to help institutions reach their internationalization goals. WES is a charter member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).
