DC - Initial Degree Certificate

DC - Initial Degree Certificate



You can request your Initial Degree Certificate free of charge if you have had your degree conferred at a degree ceremony either in person or in absentia, and have not been issued with a certificate. This applies to those who had their degree conferred at a ceremony prior to February 2010 when certificates were not routinely issued.  If you do not remember the exact date of your ceremony, an estimate will suffice. If you have not yet attended a ceremony, you are not currently eligible for a certificate. Please speak to your college about booking onto a future date.

If you require certificates for multiple degrees (e.g. BA and MA), please place an order for one certificate. The store will ask you the programme of study – you can then answer “BA/MA” so that we know to create both.

Please note that students are only permitted to have one copy of their certificate in their possession at any one time; multiple copies cannot be requested. If you are currently in possession of your certificate, however you require proof of your degree or need a certificate for an application, please order a digital degree confirmation letter. More information including how these can be ordered free of charge can be found by clicking here. Once a new copy of your certificate is printed, previous copies are rendered invalid.

Orders through the online shop can take up to 21 working days to process.  We will endeavour to process your orders and queries as soon we are able but please understand that this may take some time and may exceed our normal/stated response times. Please accept our apologies for any inconveniences that this may cause. We shall endeavour to get things back to normal as quickly as circumstances allow.
