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.
Online orders (including PDFs) will take between 5-10 days.
If you graduated before 1998 or studied on a collaborative course, your online request can take up to six weeks.
