Please complete this form if you would like to request authorised (certified) copies of your original certificate/s. An authorised copy is a photocopy of your original certificate, stamped and signed confirming that the copy is genuine. An authorised copy can be helpful where you do not wish to send your original to a third party, or where you do not wish to have third party stamps applied to your original. Authorised copies are often accepted by other universities when making an application for courses or by prospective employers.
The University does not keep copies of certificates, so we will need you to attach a full size clean scan of your certificate/s (along with your proof of ID documents, eg passport, driving licence), in order to proceed with your request. There is no charge for this service.
Certified copies will normally be processed within 2 working days of receipt, however, please note that during graduation periods (during January and July), it may not be possible to process your request until after the ceremonies. Should you encounter any difficulty around these busy periods, you may also find it helpful to request a Certificate of Status letter via the Student Records Office web site, which is an official letter issued from the University to confirm your award.
The University is not able to scan authorised copies of certificates to you, so, please provide your postal address below (or instructions for collection and we will contact you when it is ready). However, we can fax this to you, (please provide a fax number below, if you require this).
