Award Verification Service

Online verification service for employers or agencies

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

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). 

How to register

To make an enquiry you need to register with HEDD by visiting www.hedd.ac.uk. Select ‘Coventry 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. You will also be required to upload a consent form.

Making an enquiry

You will need the individual’s name, date of birth, course and qualification. For graduates you will also need their year of graduation and degree result. If you require dates of attendance, please request this at the time of making the enquiry.We recommend that you ask to see the degree certificate if there is one, and use that as the basis of your verification enquiry, or ask individuals to give you their data as they believe it is recorded in the student records system.  The enquiry will go to the team at Coventry University for manual verification, with a five working-day turnaround time.

Management information

All your enquiries are stored in the system and can be exported as an MS Excel or CSV file. You can sort your enquiries according to status:

Automatically verified

Pending – this means your enquiry could not be automatically verified by HEDD and a response is awaited from the University

Not verified – where the University has responded in the negative

Partially verified – where the University has verified some but not all of the data, e.g. the wrong year of graduation has been submitted
