Replacement Certificates and Transcripts

A degree certificate is the official award document, confirming your degree. You may only hold one copy of your original certificate at any one time. We are only able to issue a replacement if the original has been lost or destroyed. If you still have the original certificate, even if it is not available e.g. it is in storage or a frame on the wall, a duplicate cannot be issued.

A transcript lists the titles, grades and credit values of the modules you studied and successfully completed in each academic year. You may order as many replacement transcripts as required.

Before purchasing any replacement documents please make sure you read the information below:

  • We are unable to produce replacement certificates and transcripts for any awards conferred prior to 1 January 1990.
  • We are unable to guarantee the production of replacement certificates and transcripts for awards conferred prior to September 2005. We advise that you still purchase the replacement documents required and we will do our best to fulfil your request. If we are unsuccessful, we will refund your order in full and advise of anything we may be able to provide in the absence of a certificate or transcript.
  • If you require a replacement certificate or transcript for Higher National Diploma or Higher National Certificate awards conferred prior to 1997, you will need to contact Pearson (formerly Edexcel and BTEC).
