Certificates

Your degree certificate will normally be conferred and presented to you at your graduation ceremony. However, as Brunel University London hold monthly senate conferrals you do not have to wait until then to receive it. 

You can follow the instructions in eVision; “My Courses” / “View Award” and request to have your certificate either posted to the address you provide or collect it from the Student Centre once your award has been conferred by the Senate. Even if you choose to receive your certificate in this way you will still be invited to attend your graduation.

For PhD students; your thesis must be submitted to the Library before your award can be presented to the Vice-Chancellor for conferral. Your short thesis title will appear on your degree certificate.

The name that will appear on your certificate will be the name in our student record system.

Senate Conferrals are held monthly

Once your award has been conferred by the Senate, your certificate will be available to be collected or posted to you

Our next conferral date is:

1 June 2017

Once awarded, you can check your conferral date in eVision in 'my course'/'view award'

Under no circumstance will we be able to issue your certificate to you before it has been conferred (or confirmed) by the Senate.

Certificates are posted as follows: 

  • UK addresses are sent using the Royal Mail second class service.
  • Overseas addresses are sent using DHL standard mail delivery service. Which unfortunately, in a small number of cases can take a number of weeks to arrive.

We are unable to provide a courier or registered mail service for certificates. As a result we cannot provide tracking numbers.

Requests cannot be prioritised and are processed on a first come first served basis. Turnaround times vary depending on the time of year.

Non-receipt of certificate

There may be isolated instances where a certificate is lost in the postal system. In which case, graduates are entitled to request a free replacement certificate as long as it is requested within 6 months of the date that the certificate was originally posted. We would normally ask you to wait for three weeks from the postal date before contacting us.


Replacement certificate

We do not hold copies of certificates, but if you do need a replacement certificate we can produce one for you. A replacement certificate may only be requested if the original has been lost or destroyed. There can only ever be one certificate in circulation at any one time. The current cost for a replacement certificate is £60.
