    At least for those who use Hire Right to do background screening, they'll request a contact and then contact them to verify you worked there when you said you did.

    From the looks of it they have opened the Assurance applications for the Spring intake for Scotland, London and offices near London (St Albans, Uxbridge, Reading)





    Was this definitely for 2017 intake? I can't find any details on their website
    Definitely. They've opened 2017 intake early for some universities. I had a direct link to the early application via my university.

    Do they only check what you put on cv or what you say in telephone interview as well?

    Also how do they check university society positions?

    They just check if you indeed held the positions you listed, at the companies you listed, in the dates you listed.

    Nothing, everyone magnifies their experiences and skills in interviews.

    I think there's a tacit acceptance that everyone embellishes the truth when answering really specific phone interview questions like "tell me about a time when your leadership skills influenced another person's contribution to a group activity".Hey, even answers to questions like "tell me about a time when you actively sought feedback" are going to be naturally exaggerated, simply because the real answer to that question (if answered honestly) would be totally mundane and boring and amount to little more than "I didn't know how to do X, so I asked teacher/professor/boss about how to do/improve X ...and then did so".
