When will I receive my degree certificate?

If you are attending your degree ceremony, your certificate will be presented to you on stage.

If you are deferring to a future ceremony, your certificate will be issued at the time of your chosen ceremony (it cannot be issued before this time).

If you are graduating in absentia, then your certificate will be posted out 4-6 weeks after the ceremonies (providing you have given your certificate postal address on the online form). Please allow up to 8 weeks for delivery.

If this is to a UK address, then it will be sent by first class mail, and if to an overseas address, then it will be sent by recorded mail.

If you have requested your certificate to be posted by courier, and if payment of £20.00 (for UK addresses) or £40.00 (for overseas addresses) is received, we will post your certificate 2-3 weeks after the ceremonies.

As an exception to the above, if you are a student at Warwick Manufacturing Group, and have registered through the IGDS route at one of the overseas centres, your certificate will be posted to the overseas centre office by courier (in this instance, you are not expected to pay for the courier service as this cost will be met by the University).

If you have requested your certificate to be held for collection through the online form, we will hold this for collection as requested.

How long will it take to receive my certificate?

My name is wrong on my certificate, what should I do?

Your name on your degree certificate should match the name on your official record as held by the University. It is your responsibility to ensure the name on your record is your legal name i.e. the name which appears on your official documentation, as this is the name that will appear on your degree certificate and this cannot be changed after Graduation. If you have any further queries please contact us.
