University of Oxford Verification

Verifying qualifications
Employers, prospective employers, other educational institutions, funding bodies or recognised voluntary organisations may request information on a student’s current and completed educational attainments. The University can answer these questions, with the student’s permission.Please note that this service is for third party requests only. Students should visit degree certificates to obtain proof of their own degree.

The Degree Conferrals team is unable to confirm receipt of verification requests, you will receive an automated reply once a request is submitted.

We aim to process orders within 21 days. Please do not contact us regarding the status of your request unless your order is outstanding after this time. Contact within this time period may cause delays to your order.

The Oxford MA

In Oxford, the status of Master of Arts is a mark of seniority within the University which may be conferred 21 terms after matriculation. The Oxford MA allows students to reach a new status within the University and is not an upgrade of their BA or an additional qualification. It is awarded without further study and therefore has no subject or class.
