Transcripts, Certificates of Status & Proof of Study
Last updated on 4/22/2016 Print this page
The University can supply transcripts, certificates of status
or proof of study letters.
What is the difference between the documents?
The transcript is an official document, which outlines for an
individual student the dates of attendance, and all of the courses
and results obtained during the your time at University.
The Certificate of Status is for current students only and is
used to show the course you are currently studying along with your
expected end date.
The Proof of Study letter is for past students and confirms the
dates of study and the qualification received. It contains less
detailed information than a full transcript but provides an easy
way to show the dates you were enrolled as a student.
Degree Verification Service
HEDD is a new Degree Verification service. The service is an
online portal, used by 3rd parties to verify the awards or periods
of study of our current and previous students. It is an official
service, managed by the Higher Education Careers Services Unit
(HECSU) on behalf of Universities UK and Guild HE. Enquirers enter
the details of the student whose award they wish to verify, upload
a scan of the student’s consent form, and pay a small fee.
All requests from 3rd parties (e.g. other HEIs,
potential student employers or professional credential checking
services) to verify student awards should use HEDD by visiting

Degree Verifications for 3rd Parties
Employers or agencies
We are pleased to announce the implementation of the new Higher
Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) online verification service for
employers and agencies to verify University of Hull awards. Please
note that this service is only for third parties.
The system has been developed by Graduate Prospects, in
consultation with universities, employers and screening agencies.
Funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE)
and launched by Graduate Prospects, HEDD is now being rolled out to
institutions throughout the UK.
The online candidate verification service allows registered
enquirers to input data provided by applicants (name, date of
birth, institution, year of graduation, qualification
classification etc). In real time the service checks the
information given against an encrypted dataset from the
institution's student records and verifies it if it is matched.
Enquirers will be charged a small fee per enquiry.
How to register
To make an enquiry you need to register with HEDD by visiting
'University of Hull’ from the list of UK higher education
institutions and choose the option to 'verify a degree award'.
There is a charge of £10 per enquiry. If you require further
assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Making an enquiry
You’ll need the individual’s name, date of birth, course and
qualification. For graduates you'll also need their year of
graduation and degree result.
We recommend that you ask to see the degree certificate if there
is one, and use that as the basis of your verification enquiry, or
ask individuals to give you their data as they believe it’s
recorded in the student records system. That way you have a better
chance of getting an automatic verification. If you don’t get an
automatic verification, the enquiry will go to the team at Hull for
manual verification, with a five working-day turnaround time.
All your enquiries are stored in the system and can be exported
as an MS Excel or CSV file. You can sort your enquiries according
◾Pending – this means we couldn’t automatically verify your enquiry
and you’re waiting for a response from the University
◾Not verified – where the University has responded in the
◾Partially verified – where the University has verified some but
not all of the data, eg the wrong year of graduation has been
If you have any problems or queries, please email email@example.com,
including your phone number if you would like a call back. Graduate
prospects have conducted previous research with enquirers as well
as a pilot programme, but your feedback at this stage will be
critical in developing the system over the next year, as we roll
out to other UK universities.
