Third party verification requests

Third party enquirers, such as employers, agencies and embassies, must verify attendance and awards from the University of York with a Prospects Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD).

A HEDD verification confirms:

  • the candidate’s name
  • qualification type
  • course name
  • year of award
  • classification obtained
  • dates of attendance

Please visit to register.

There is a small charge for each enquiry and you must provide the written consent of the individual.

To prevent delays, please enter the candidate’s details as they appear on their degree certificate.

Enquiries are checked and completed by the university’s registry team. The due date will be listed on your enquiry.
