Types of certificates
In order to be eligible to receive a certificate your results must have been confirmed by an Assessment Board of the University and if applicable conferred at a Graduation Ceremony (or in your absence if you do not attend a Graduation Ceremony).
In addition you must also not have any outstanding financial obligations owed to the University to receive your certificate.

When will my certificate be distributed to me?
If you attend your Graduation ceremony you will be able to collect your certificate on the day, following your ceremony. If you do not attend your ceremony, we aim to despatch all certificates as soon as possible after Graduation but due to the high volume this may not be until up to 12 weeks following the Graduation Ceremony.
[NB: for replacement certificates see the section on Replacement/Duplicate Certificates for details of distribution timescales]
For awards that are not eligible to attend Graduation we aim to dispatch all of these types of certificates within twelve weeks of the Assessment Board where the award was ratified.
Should proof of your qualification be requested by an employer or another University prior to your certificate being issued you can request an interim letter from the Certificates Team.
If you attend your Graduation ceremony you will be able to collect your certificate on the day, following your ceremony.
If you cannot attend your Graduation ceremony, certificates are despatched following the conferment of award, by the Certificates Team based in the Academic Quality and Student Governance Unit of the Academic Registry.
All posted certificates are posted to graduates’ last recorded home address as recorded on the University’s Students Records System, by second class post (unless you advise us of an alternative address). Certificates can also be collected in person – you need to advise us of this in order for arrangements to be made.
You must ensure that your home address and email address are correct prior to completing your programme of study. If there are any subsequent changes please update them either via Student Moodle, Student Data Services or the School Office.
