Replacement certificates and certified copies

If you're a Leeds graduate and have lost your original degree certificate, you can request a replacement or get a copy officially certified. 

Replacement certificates

**Please be advised, due to the Winter graduation ceremonies we will not be able to process any replacement certificate orders now until January 2018**

Please double-check that you no longer have the original before applying, as the new certificate will replace the old one.

The replacement certificate will have exactly the same award information as your original and will be produced on current certificate paper. 

We don't charge for standard postage (this means first-class post to UK addresses, and standard airmail to international addresses). 

The only information on the certificate will be your name, programme of study, classification and award date. If you require a breakdown of your marks and modules, you can apply for a transcript.

DHL delivery of replacement certificate

If you wish, you can pay for DHL delivery. Only do this once you've requested your replacement certificate and ensure that you state that this is for a "replacement certificate".

How to apply

All University of Leeds students (including all affiliated colleges with the exception of Leeds Trinity)

  • Apply and pay for your replacement certificate online.
  • We'll send you your replacement certificate in approximately two to three weeks.

Certified copies of certificates

**Please be advised, due to the Winter graduation ceremonies we will not be able to process any Certified Copy orders now until January 2018**

If you have your original certificate you can request certified copies of certificates.

We don't hold copies of past student certificates, so you'll need to email or post us a scan/photocopy. We'll then stamp and sign it to certify that it is a true copy of the original.

You can only apply for certified copies if you have the original - if you've lost it you can apply for a replacement certificate (see process above).

We cannot certify transcripts, but you can apply for a copy of your transcript.

How to apply

All University of Leeds students (including all affiliated colleges with the exception of Leeds Trinity)

  • Apply and pay for your certified copies of your certificate online.
  • Email or post us a scan/photocopy (not the original) of your certificate within 14 days (only do this after you have applied). If we don't receive the scan/photocopy within 14 days of your application, we'll cancel your request and refund your payment.
  • We'll send you your certified copies within approximately five working days.
