Most undergraduate courses finish in spring in May/June, and most postgraduate taught courses finish at the end of September.

It often takes time for results to be released after you have completed all your assessments, which means you can finish your course and still be awaiting results.

During this time, it’s likely you will need to prove completion of your course, but this can be difficult if your results haven’t yet been finalised.

Student Services can provide a letter called a ‘Pre-Award Letter’ which includes:

  • An overview of your course
  • Your course start and end dates
  • Details of when your faculty assessment board is likely to meet and confirm your results
  • Your expected award date

This document will enable you to prove to prospective employers or other organisations or institutions that you have completed your course and are awaiting confirmation of your module results and final award.

To request this please submit a document request.

Already have some module results?
If you already have some ratified results for previous years of your course, or for earlier semesters, while you’re waiting for your final results and award to come through, in addition to the letter described above, you can also still access your Record of Agreed Results letter instantly.
Important to know: We are unable to provide documents with provisional or unratified results.
