Certificates and Transcripts
Upon completion of your programme and after your degree or professional qualification has been conferred at your ceremony, you will receive your official Certificate and Transcript. These documents will be sent to you via post to the address you have confirmed with us (please monitor your emails for communication from the Faculty Administration Office to request this information). Please allow up to 8 weeks from the final date of graduation to receive your certificate.
Your degree or professional qualification certificate is an educational credential and a legal document. At any given time, you should only be in possession of one certificate per level of study you have completed. You will only be issued with one original copy of your certificate and copies are not retained by the University. Your degree certificate will carry a unique hologram and the University’s official crest.
We advise that you do not post photographs of your certificate or transcript online, as the images can be used by fraudsters to create fake certificates. You certificate will show your full name, as it appears in the University’s Student Records System and cannot usually be changed after your graduation.
Please see our Procedure for the Issue of Duplicate Certificates or Transcripts for more details. We advise students and graduates to maintain legal records pertaining to any name changes.
If your certificate and/or transcript is lost, damaged or stolen, please contact the Faculty Administration Office at FAO@bishopg.ac.uk to apply for a replacement. There is a fee for this service. You can find more details in the Assessment and Awards section of our website here.
