History of Anglia Ruskin University

How to apply for a replacement certificate

If your original award certificate has been lost or damaged and you require a replacement please email awards@anglia.ac.uk.

A replacement certificate costs £40.00

An award certificate is an important official document and it is not possible for a student to be in possession of more than one for the same award. We will therefore require you to either return the damaged certificate or complete a declaration of loss. Under no circumstances will Anglia Ruskin University issue additional copies or a replacement to any applicant holding an original certificate.

Anglia Ruskin University reserves the right to refuse to provide a replacement or to specify the reason for this decision.

It is not possible for a certificate to be reissued in any other name that that held at the time the award was conferred.

Damaged certificate

If your original award certificate has been damaged you must return the damaged certificate to the Conferment Team, Assessment Unit, Anglia Ruskin University, Bishop Hall Lane, Chelmsford CM1 1SQ. Please email awards@anglia.ac.uk.

Non-receipt of certificate

If you have never received your certificate please complete and submit the AO4 Declaration of Non-receipt Form

Your claim will be investigated as all certificates are sent by recorded delivery and are traceable via Royal Mail.  Your certificate may have been returned to us.  Please note that if your certificate is returned to us because you have not updated your home address we will make a charge to cover the additional cost of postage.

Transcripts

A final transcript of results is issued to each student following the Awards Board and is free of charge.  All final transcripts are sent to the student’s home address as held on Anglia Ruskin University’s central student administration database.

Anglia Ruskin University transcripts are in the form of a European Diploma Supplement (see below for further information). This complies with the Bologna Process which requires all Higher Education institutions in the UK to offer transcripts that make it easier to compare qualifications gained in different European Higher education systems. This transcript therefore provides a translation of credits gained with Anglia Ruskin University into those defined by the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

For further information on the European Diploma Supplement transcript (EDS) see the European Commission web pages:

Repeat transcripts

We provide additional copies of the EDS Transcript. The cost is £15 for the first copy and £5 for each additional copy ordered at the same time. Please go to the Anglia Ruskin Online Store http://www.anglia.ac.uk/transcripts

If your award was conferred between 1992 and 1998 please email awards@anglia.ac.uk and we will let you know if we can provide a transcript of your results. The above charge will apply.

Verification of Awards

Third parties, ie. employers and agencies can use the Higher Education Degree Databank (HEDD) online verification service to verify Anglia Ruskin University awards from 1992 onwards* (see below).

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.
The online candidate verification service allows registered enquirers to input data provided by applicants (name, date of birth, institution, year of graduation, qualification classification etc). Enquirers will be charged a small fee per enquiry.

How to register

To make an enquiry you need to register with HEDD by visiting www.hedd.ac.uk. Select 'Anglia Ruskin University ’ from the list of UK higher education institutions and choose the option to 'verify a degree award'. There is a charge of £12 per enquiry. If you require further assistance, please email heddhelp@prospects.ac.uk.

Making an enquiry

You’ll need the individual’s name, date of birth, course and qualification. For graduates you'll also need their year of graduation and degree result.The system does not currently cover start dates. If you want to verify start dates, please submit your enquiry as usual and email heddhelp@prospects.ac.uk with the enquiry reference number in the subject line.

Help

If you have any problems or queries, please email heddhelp@prospects.ac.uk, including your phone number if you would like a call back. Graduate prospects have conducted previous research with enquirers as well as a pilot programme, but your feedback at this stage will be critical in developing the system over the next year, as we roll out to other UK universities.
