University Award Certificates
All students completing their awards in June/July should receive a certificate by the end of September.
Students completing at other times of the year can expect to receive their certificates within 6 weeks of receiving formal notification in writing of their award.
If you graduated after 1992 a replacement certificate will cost £50.00.
We are unable to provide replacement certificates for pre- 1993 awards given by Staffordshire Polytechnic or North Staffordshire Polytechnic.
Certificates awarded before 1993 fall into one of the following two categories:
The Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA): CNAA was the awarding body for Staffordshire Polytechnic and North Staffordshire Polytechnic courses including most degree and PGCE courses. CNAA no longer exists but the Open University are now responsible for their records and can provide replacement certificates. Please see their website for more information http://www.open.ac.uk/cicp/main/validation/awards-and-aftercare
BTEC courses: you can obtain a replacement certificate for pre- 1993 BTEC awards (such as HND or HNC) from Edexcel/Pearson. Please see their website for more information:
