Proof of student status letter
A Certificate of Matriculation provides proof that a student was matriculated for a particular academic session.
- Certificates will only be produced if a student was fully matriculated for the relevant session.
- The following information is included on the certificate: Current and Previous Session(s); Personal Details: Name, Matric No.; Programme of Study details; Method of Study; and Programme start and (expected) end dates.
- Certificates cannot be customised to include additional information, however if you want to use your certificate of matriculation to support an application for a Schengen Visa this can be arranged. You should include detail of which consulate you are applying to under the "Any additional information" heading of the form. If you are making an in person appointment at a Consulate, you should have your certificate of matriculation before you make your appointment.

I am a third party (e.g. employer, recruitment agency, university, etc.) wishing to verify current student status and dates of attendance
We cannot respond to third-party enquiries to verify student status, even if you have a signed consent form from a student.
You must ask current students to access their MyEd Student Self Service portal and send you their proof of student status (certificate of matriculation) electronically. You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org containing a secure link to download the document.
