Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD)

We are pleased to announce the implementation of the new Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) online verification service for employers and agencies to verify Nottingham Trent University 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.

HEDD is supported by the UK Government and recognised authorities of UK Higher Education.

The aim is to combat a growing market for degree fraud by creating a secure and reliable portal that ensures our UK graduates are treated fairly in the highly competitive employment market.

HEDD is a secure online verification service allowing you to check that a UK university or college is or has been recognised as a degree-awarding body by the UK Government.

It allows employers and agencies to verify the degree qualifications of graduates from UK universities and colleges from a single online portal.

Please note: we no longer respond to any postal reference requests.

Employers and agencies

All requests to verify information regarding current students, leavers and graduates are now processed through Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD).

Current and former students

As a current or former student of Nottingham Trent University you may at times require verification of your study, a replacement certificate or transcripts or information relating to your studies.
