The following pages explain how Kingston University graduates can obtain proof of study and final award.
Please note: there is a different process to follow if you are Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education graduate, and have gained a University of London award or a St George's award. Find out more.
Please note: Graduates from 2014 onwards cannot purchase a Diploma Supplement or Transcript as these have been replaced by the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
Please read the following notes carefully before you complete anything.
We only retain graduation documents for 5 years. If it's been more than 5 years since you graduated, you will need to purchase replacement documents via the relevant links on this website.
Within the UK
Please ensure that someone will be at the address you provided to sign when the certificate arrives.
We cannot use private couriers.
During the graduation period we're very busy, so it could take up to six weeks to send the documents you requested. At other times, your request should be turned around within 15 working days.
The name entered on the enrolment form and verified as part of the enrolment procedures, is the one that will appear on a graduation certificate.
It doesn't have to be your full name, as on your passport. For example, your middle name may be omitted, as long as sufficient evidence is produced to ensure you're recognisably the same person named on the passport (or some other proof of ID). However, if you subsequently change your mind, you will have to re-submit original proof of any amendment before your final Programme Assessment Board (PAB) meets to agree your final classification.
If your name has changed since you started your course (for example, you got married), you should take your original proof of ID, such as marriage certificate or deed poll, to your school office to get your name changed on the system before your final Programme Assessment Board meets to agree your final classification.
Your name cannot be changed once your award has been formally agreed by the Programme Assessment Board – unless the reasons for that change are considered exceptional.
If you can prove the name was changed before PAB agreement, a change will be considered. However, we'll charge £30 if certificates have already been produced.
