CNAA Students

This page is for Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA) award-holders only.

The CNAA was the largest single degree-awarding body in the United Kingdom, operating from 1965-1992. The Open University (OU) maintains a digital archive of awards that were issued by the CNAA and are able to provide verification of a CNAA award by way of a pro forma (certificate-style document).  The fee for this service is £60 and the current turnaround time is 10-15 working days. 

For UK addresses, pro formas will be sent via First Class post.  For anywhere else, they will be sent via Royal Mail's International Tracked & Signed service (full tracking not always available, depending on destination country). 

If you would like a PDF copy (in addition to the hard copy), please type '(PDF)' after your name on the application page.

We do not hold transcript information for CNAA awards.

 

Please make sure that you read the following before making an application:

If we are unable to verify your award, we will notify you by email and refund 50% of the fee. 

We can also verify a CNAA award by letter or email (for the same fee).  Our default service is to produce a pro forma (certificate-style document), so please see our FAQ for details of how to apply for a letter or email of verification.
