Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we can provide official confirming letters in a digital form only until further notice.

For further guidance please contact SSiD.

Who they are for

If you are a former student you can order a Confirming Letter verifying your qualifications and attendance.

If you have withdrawn from your course, you can order a Confirming Letter verifying your attendance only.

If you are a current student, you should request a Certificate of Student Status instead. Your Confirming Letter will contain incomplete information until you have been awarded your degree.

What they include

Your confirming letter will outline your:

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


Online orders for confirming letters are £5.

Request a confirming letter

If you graduated prior to 2000 and we do not hold a digital record of your studies it may not be possible to provide a confirming letter at this time, as all University buildings are closed. 

When you have been awarded your degree, you can request a 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 or a PDF copy, please specify this on your order.

Your online order confirmation will explain how to request additional paperwork.
