Proof of degree

Do you need proof of your degree for further study or a new job? We can help!

Verification Letter

There may be occasions when you need to provide formal confirmation of your former attendance at St Mary’s, for example, to a prospective employer.

We can help with this by providing formal confirmation of your attendance at St Mary’s University, the course you studied, and details of any qualification(s) you were awarded; this is called a Verification Letter.

This letter will be provided upon request and is free of charge, all you need to do is email your details to registryservices@stmarys.ac.uk and request a Verification Letter.

We will process any requests as quickly as possible.

The Examinations Office can also provide verification information for students who are being required to provide specific confirmation in order to be able to obtain accreditation for teaching overseas, and also for the completion of forms relating to Master's Degrees and Research Funding Councils, such as the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

If you require further information in relation to the above, please email registryservices@stmarys.ac.uk.
