Transcripts, certificates and reference requests

Our awards team can help you request a new transcript or certificate of your studies at ARU.

Award verification requests can be sought by a third party (eg employer, Embassy or equivalent, not by former students themselves) through the Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) online verification service. This is only possible for Anglia Ruskin University awards from 1992 onwards. For third parties to make an enquiry they need to register with HEDD by visiting www.hedd.ac.uk. Select 'Anglia Ruskin University’ from the list of UK higher education institutions and choose the option to 'verify a degree award'. There is a charge of £12 per enquiry. If you require further assistance, please email heddhelp@prospects.ac.uk

Transcripts and certificates

If you’d like a copy of your transcript or degree certificate and you graduated in 1992 or after, please visit our online store, where you can order a replacement. You will need to know your student ID.

If you are unsure of your student ID, or if you completed your studies before 1992, please contact our awards team:

Reference requests

If you are looking for a reference request, please contact your faculty directly and they will assist you. You will need to provide your student ID number and date of birth. If a company is contacting us on your behalf, they will need to provide proof of consent.
