Please note that you can only purchase one duplicate copy.  If you require further copies of the original, the only other option is to purchase black and white certified copies.

Duplicates have the same standing as the original. However, as they're produced in our current format, they may not look the same as original. The charge for this service is £30 per copy, including postage and packing. The University reserves the right not to issue a duplicate.

Royal Mail recorded mail postage

Please note that all documents ordered via the website are posted via Royal Mail recorded delivery to the address entered in the delivery address field. A signature will be required on delivery. If there is no one to sign for the package, it'll go back to the local sorting office and, eventually, be returned to us. The Post Office should leave you some notification that they tried to deliver a recorded mail item. Orders posted to international addresses will be sent via Royal Mail Airsure recorded delivery. The University won't be able to estimate how long items take to be delivered to various destinations. We also can't be responsible for any items that go astray in the mail. If you wish to trace items that have been ordered, we'll provide you with the recorded mail item number and you can then trace the item via the Royal Mail website.

If you think you're unlikely to be at your home address when the documents arrive, please provide an alternative address, such as your work.

How long does it take?

Requests should be turned around within 15 working days.
