Certificates and transcripts

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.

Please note: if we do not have an up to date 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 need to wait until your postal service returns the certificate to us; at which point we will arrange for it be be posted to your new address.

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