I think you can phone individual Unis & ask, it's not considered confidential info whether or not someone received a degree.

Many universities subscribe to the Higher Education Degree Datacheck online verification service. By registering with HEDD you can then verify qualifications for a small charge. Students can, I believe, choose to opt out of being included in HEDD and I am not sure that individuals who are not employers can register with HEDD.

Some universities do not subscribe to HEDD and in accordance with their interpretation of Data Protection will not release information without the consent of the individual concerned, see e.g.

Some newspapers will have details, I think Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh publish lists of graduates in the Scotsman.

You would have to know what name they were using at the time too. I would be untraceable wink
