Certificates

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

If you are visiting campus in person please remember to adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear a face mask. The latest guidance about the University's response to COVID-19 can be found on our Information Hub which is updated regularly.

Receiving a certificate

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

If you do not attend graduation, your certificate will be posted to the address that you provide us when you complete your graduation registration using MyStudentRecord. Please note: if we do not have an up to date address, we will be unable to post your certificate.

Documents are sent via Royal Mail Recorded Delivery or International Signed For Delivery. A tracking number will be provided to you once your certificates have been posted.

Regrettably, we now have taken the difficult decision to postpone our graduation ceremonies which were due to be held in January 2021.  All information about graduation can be found here.

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 return the certificate to us; at which point we will arrange for it to be posted to your new address.

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

If you were expecting your certificate to be posted but you have not received it please contact us at graduation@le.ac.uk.

Replacement certificates

Certificates are only replaced where the original has been lost or destroyed. When applying for a replacement certificate you must give the reason why you require a replacement.

You can order a replacement certificate via our online shop.

Certified copies of certificates

Certified copies of your certificate can be used to apply for a job or university course where you do not want to send your original document.

If you would like a certified copy of your degree certificate you can order this via our online shop.

If you believe there is an error on your certificate please contact us at graduation@le.ac.uk.
