Academic Verification

main content

From time to time organisations request verification of current and past students’ attendance and qualifications. These organisations include: prospective employers, employment and screening agencies, other Higher Education institutions, local authorities and Government bodies.

Often the purpose of these requests is to verify and confirm qualifications, graduation, dates/mode of attendance, and/or courses taken. The disclosure of this data is strictly limited to a student’s period of study, programme of study, degree classification (if applicable) and will not be disclosed without express consent from the student.

3rd Party Request

We will only be able to deal with your request if it is accompanied by an appropriate declaration signed by the student/graduate.

Please send a separate request for each verification you require. If the candidate studied more than one programme, please submit an academic verification request for each programme of study.

Submit your request to verification@strath.ac.uk and ensure that the subject line of your email reads as follows:

  • Student surname
  • Student forename
  • Degree awarded

The confirmation will be sent to you in the body of an email from our generic mailbox verification@strath.ac.uk.  

Please note that for security reasons we will not confirm details over the telephone.

Student Request

You may request that an academic verification be sent either to you or direct to a third party. Please state your preference when submitting your request, bearing in mind that the majority of institutions will insist that the academic verification is sent direct to them.

Submit your request to verification@strath.ac.uk and ensure that the subject line of your email reads as follows:

  • Student Surname
  • Student Forename
  • Degree Awarded

The confirmation will be sent to you in the body of an email from our generic mailbox verification@strath.ac.uk. If you require this on a letterhead please specify this in your request.

Please allow sufficient time for the verification to be produced (approximately 5 working days), especially if you are due to leave the country shortly. Unfortunately, we cannot accept same day requests.
