Parchments - Official proof of your qualification given to you at Graduation
The certificate you receive when you graduate is called a parchment. This page outlines the details a parchment has, and the process you should follow in the very rare event you lose the parchment after you have graduated.
Parchment: what it is
The certificate you receive when you graduate is called a parchment.
A parchment contains:
- The name of your degree
- The university’s seal
- The date of your graduation
If you don’t wish to attend graduation, you may opt to graduate in absentia and we will courier your parchment to you.
Replacement parchments (testamur)
The parchment (testamur) for a degree, diploma or certificate awarded by the University is a legal document and only one original can be in existence at a time. Unfortunately, we therefore can't provide a copy of your parchment.
After 5 years, any uncollected parchments will be archived. There will be a charge associated with retrieving these from the archive.
If you have a question about replacement parchments
(please provide details for your request)
