All of the application forms to request the relevant documents can be completed electronically and e-mailed to us using the address above, or can be printed off, completed manually and submitted by post.

The majority of requests for academic references are dealt with by Student Services in the Centre of study, although some may be referred to the Registry for action. Please see the details under related links below.

Please be aware that all orders for documentation are processed in the order in which they are received. We currently work a two-week turn around period, which commences from receipt of a completed form.

When will I receive my certificate?
For recent completers, the certificate process for an original certificate takes up to 16 weeks from the final result publication date. Please consult your course explanatory notes within your Elite account for further details.

For students who completed courses one year ago or more, the current processing time for re-issue certificates is up to 8 weeks from receipt of a completed form within the department inbox. The Certification department processes re-issue requests in the order it receives them. The processing times may vary throughout the year, so please consult with the team with any queries at [email protected]

I never received my original certificate - how can I get another one?
The University provides all students with their qualification certificates following the successful completion of their courses. The University only provides one original certificate per student per course they complete. We cannot issue certified copies of certificates or issue multiple copies of the same qualification certificate.

The University can replace students’ certificates in certain circumstances and only for courses completed in 2007 or later. Please see below for more details on the services the Certification department can provide.

Unclaimed Certificates
If for any reason a certificate returns to campus the University will keep it on file. If you did not receive your certificate and believe it was returned to us, please contact the department.  If a certificate returns to campus we can forward it to an alternate address.

Error on a certificate
If The University issues your original certificate with inaccurate content (e.g., a name misspell or inaccurate classification), we will reproduce another certificate after the return of the original. We offer this service to students who completed their courses in 2007 or later. There is no fee to re-issue a certificate where The University makes an error on the original. Please use this form to request a re-issue of an incorrect certificate. Please check the n/a only where the University issued an original certificate with inaccurate content.

Duplicate Certificates
We only offer this service to students who completed their courses within the previous twelve months. If you successfully completed your course within the last year and did not receive a certificate, we can provide another. The fee for a duplicate certificate is £5. Please use this form to request a re-issue and return it to us via the contact details provided, with the payment details included.

Replacement Certificates
The replacement certificate is for students who successfully completed their courses more than twelve months ago. If your certificate was lost, stolen or damaged over time, we can provide a replacement. We will require the return of the damaged certificate before we can re-issue another. We offer this service to students who completed their courses in 2007 or later.

The fee for a replacement certificate due to loss, theft or damage is £30. Please use this form and return it to us via the contact details provided, with the payment details included.

How can I get an academic reference?
Students requiring academic references should initially contact the Student Services department at the Centre where they studied. If the Centre is unable to locate details on the student, they will contact the Academic Registry for further information.

Any students who require a reference and studied at The University prior to 2000 should email [email protected] with full details of when they studied on the course and, where possible, the names of personal or subject tutors. If we are unable to locate staff available to provide a reference, we will inform you of this and provide you with options of other documentation that you might find useful.

Please be aware that all orders for documentation are processed in the order in which they are received. We currently work a two-week turn around period, which commences from receipt of a completed order form.

We undertake to contact you if we have any queries with your order, otherwise, please be patient as the staff involved do not work full time so there will not always be someone available to answer your enquiry.
