Policy Change – providing verification of studies for past and present students

Posted by rmt22 at Oct 20, 2016 01:22 PM |
We are required by the QAA Quality Code to have a policy detailing the length of time for which detailed records of studies will be retained.

This information on past and present students may be asked for by the students themselves, or by employers checking whether a student was at the University.

The new policy, which has been approved by APC, states that the length of time we must keep the student records required for study verification is ‘completion of study plus 10 years’. This is applicable from the beginning of the 2016/17 academic year.

Information and supporting materials for staff who deal with these requests are detailed on our verification of studies web pages (requires log in).
