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 posted to an address you provide 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 doctoral researchers; 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:

13 June 2024

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


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.

Certificates can also currently be requested to be collected from our Student Centre via the eVision certificate task.

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.

  • If posted to the UK, we would ask that you please wait for 3 weeks from the postal date before contacting us.
  • If posted to an international address we ask that you please wait for 8 weeks from the postal date before contacting us, as international post can take several weeks to reach its destination.

Replacement certificate

The certificate issued by Brunel University London acts as proof of award conferment and is a unique and valuable legal document. To help prevent fraud Alumni are advised to keep their certificate safe and secure at all times and act appropriately when sharing the document. The loss or destruction of a certificate is a serious matter and a replacement will only be issued at the discretion of the University, with the University reserving the right not to issue a replacement. All replacement certificates will be produced in the current style. The current cost for a replacement is £60.
