Graduation FAQs

How will I receive my Degree Certificate?

With no physical graduation ceremony taking place, a paper version of your Degree Certificate will be posted out to your home address by mid-August.

Before this time, you can access a digital version of your Degree Certificate and your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR – this contains data from your academic transcript) via the GradIntel portal. To access the portal, please use the email address that you registered to graduate with.

Both documents should be fully up-to-date and accessible by mid-July. If you’re looking to secure work or further education and need to evidence these documents, you can send your prospective employer / education institution a secure link to view these electronically.

If you have any problems logging in to GradIntel, please contact the portal directly.

Will I receive an academic transcript with my Degree Certificate in the post?

No. We no longer print academic transcripts for graduating students however you can access these details via the GradIntel portal.

Is it possible to collect my Degree Certificate from campus?
