Third Party Verifications

The University uses the Digitary CORE online verification service. This web-based service enables:

  • the University to securely issue academic awards and other official documents online;
  • students (past and present) to access academic awards and other official documents online via a secure web portal in read-only form;
  • students to share the documents with third parties online in a controlled audited manner;
  • third parties to receive verified information in a secure, single system;
  • the University to be compliant with GDPR legislation by not releasing personal information without consent.

If you are seeking information on a student's current and/or completed educational attainments then you need to ask them to share it with you. Further information is available on the Digitary CORE website.


Academic Verification Document

The University uses a secure electronic document system, called Digitary CORE, which allows both undergraduate and graduate students to request and access verification documents online. 


Requesting a Verification Document

The digital Academic Verification Document can be requested in CamSIS self-service via the Academic tile (alumni can access via Extended Self-Service). The document will be generated automatically and should be available within five working days, it contains a brief overview of your academic record at Cambridge. This can be used to validate your attendance and academic award.

If the information in the document is not correct, check your personal details and course registration in CamSIS.  If you need help doing this or would like further information, please contact:

Your College or Department may be able to prepare other bespoke letters which include information not contained on the Academic Verification Document.  Please contact your departmental or College administrator for information.


GCSE, A-Level, and Overseas Examinations

The Student Registry has no connection with examinations at GCSE or A-Level, and overseas examinations. These are administered by Cambridge Assessment (previously known as the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate). For information on these topics (including past exam results) please visit the Cambridge Assessment website .
