Degree certificates are legal documents that prove you have successfully completed your course at the University.
Recieving a certificate
One certificate is issued by Student and Academic Services, free of charge.
Your certificate will be given to you at graduation. If you do not attend your graduation ceremony it will be posted to your home address (or the address you have specified on your graduation attendance response).
It is important that tell us if you change your address. If we do not have your correct address you will have to pay for a new certificate to be sent to you.
