Award verification for third parties

Employers, prospective employers, other educational institutions, funding bodies or recognised voluntary organisations may request information on a student's educational attainments. The University can supply information, only with the graduate's permission.

Please note:

  • This service is for third party requests only.
  • Graduates are encouraged to use their award documents, share their HEAR, or place an order online for proof of their own degree.
  • Current students can download a 'proof of study letter' from OSIS or contact the university library to request a 'proof of study' letter in person.

We aim to reply to all award verification requests from third parties within 10 working days.

Requests carry a service charge of £12 per search undertaken* and can be made via the online store.

The following information is required:

  • The graduate's first name (at the time of their studies)
  • The graduate's surname (at the time of their studies)
  • The graduate's date of birth
  • The graduate's Kingston University ID number (if known)
  • The graduate's subject of study
  • The graduate's date of attendance (if known)
  • Who the award verification should be addressed to

Once you have placed your order, we will send you a confirmation email, and carry out the search. In order for us to release the results of the search to you, you must attach a signed consent from the graduate as a reply to our confirmation email.

Our award verification will then be sent to you via email. Please note, the signed graduate consent must be sent within 21 days of the original request, in order to be processed. After this time a new order will need to be placed, and a further £12 payment made.

*Please note payments are non-refundable once we have received your request.
