Degree certificates are legal documents that prove you have successfully completed your course at the University.

Receiving a certificate

If you attend graduation, your degree certificate will be presented to you at your ceremony.

If you do not attend graduation, your certificate will be posted to the address that you gave us when you completed the "Certificates and Graduation" link within the Study tab of MyStudentRecord. If you have not already completed this information, please log in to MyStudentRecord before 13 June 2014.

Please note that if you do not supply your address, we will be unable to post your certificate.

If you are subsequently not available at that address to receive your certificate, we cannot issue another. You will have to wait until your postal service returns the certificate to us; at that stage we will arrange for it be be posted to you your new address.

If your certificate is lost you may be asked to pay for a replacement.
