Confirming Letters

As a graduate you can get a letter from SSiD confirming your qualifications and attendance.

  • Study dates
  • Award date
  • Graduation date
  • Department and faculty
  • Qualification obtained
  • Thesis title (PGR students)
  • Mode of study (e.g. full time/part-time)

  • Recent graduates (up to 12 months after Graduation) = £3
  • Graduates / leavers since 1 Jan 2000 = £5
  • Graduates / leavers before 31 December 1999 = £10

Request a Confirming Letter

You can request a digital Confirming Letter online from SSiD.

If you completed more than one degree with us, you must order a Confirming Letter for each degree.

If you require additional information in your letter, please let us know in the additional requirements section.

If you graduated before 2000 and we don't hold a digital record of your studies, we may not be able to provide a Confirming Letter as we can't access our archive records due to COVID-19.

You'll receive an order confirmation email once we've received your order. We'll email you if we need any more information. 

We'll issue your digital Confirming Letter in PDF format. It includes a digital stamp and signature from the University Secretary and is official in this format.
