Verification

If your offer of a place is conditional upon providing evidence of your academic qualifications, please see below for information with regards to what are acceptable forms of verification:

We can accept verification of your results via email. This can be from yourself or the organisation, school, college or university who awarded the qualification.  

Where you have provided verification of your results yourself, you will need to bring the original certificate or transcript or a certified copy with you when you register for your course.

The email must follow these instructions:

  • Contain a scanned copy of the original certificate or transcript as an attachment or if the email is from a school, college or univeristy, they may confirm the exact result(s) and qualification name in the body of the email.
  • If scanned copies are provided by a school, college or university, then the email must confirm that the scanned copy is a true likeness of the original document which they must have seen.
  • Emails must be sent to the email address stipulated in your offer letter or admissions@contacts.bham.ac.uk. Please also indicate VERIFICATION OF RESULTS in the subject line of the email.
Any emails which do not follow these instructions will not be accepted as verification of qualifications.
