Providing Value for Money

At SSiD we recognise that the services we provide to current students need to demonstrate good value for money.

We try to use the budget we are given economically, efficiently and effectively so that we can devote the maximum resources to improve the current student experience.

We provide over 30,000 documents to current students, and 90% of these are free such as Council Tax Letters, Bank Letter, Letter Confirming Student Status, Letters with Term Address details, etc. However, the materials for some items (such as transcript watermarked paper and UCards) cost a considerable amount of money, and we have to make some charges to cover these cost.

We try, at all times, to minimise the charges on current students by charging a little more to students who graduated over a year ago who we believe are more able to afford it.

For example: A Transcript of Qualification costs over £3 to produce, and we only charge current students £1 per transcript. To offset this cost,  we charge students who have graduated over a year £5 (including postage and packing).
