Award Verification Letter

Award Verification Letters for pre-2006 students graduates

If you are a third party, or a student who graduated from one of the University's predecessor institutions including Luton College of Higher Education, Luton Technical College or the University of Luton, and would like your studies verified we may be able to help.

The University began confirming its own awards in 2006. This means that if your award was made prior to this date we may not be able to provide you with a duplicate certificate, however, we may be able to produce an award verification letter.

An award verification letter confirms a former student’s qualification and classification. Once we are able to retrieve documentary evidence from our archive records that confirms the course undertaken was completed and a qualification was awarded, we will be able to issue an award verification letter. Please note that due to the historical nature of the records, not all requests can be fulfilled as there may be difficulties locating certain physical or electronic documents required to produce an award verification letter.

There is a small non-refundable fee irrespective of whether we are able to verify your award which is included with the service of providing award verification letters. Please find a price listing in table below.
