Your degree certificate

Your certificate is not presented to you at your award ceremony, but will be sent to you by post.

Graduates will receive an email from Registry, confirming the date of your degree award, and the address to where your certificate will be sent. Along with your certificate you will receive information about how to log onto the Verify web portal where you will be able to access your electronic certificate and Higher Education Achievement Report

If any changes are needed to your address, please inform Registry as soon as possible, to ensure that your documents reach you safely.

You will receive your certificate within eight weeks of the date of the email from Registry.

If you have any questions or concerns about receiving your certificate, please contact the Registry Team:
