Verification of Student Awards

Robert Gordon University uses the Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) online verification service for employers and agencies to verify study on current and former students.

The Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) online verification service allows employers and agencies to confirm dates of study, courses studied and awards received.  

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.
