Appearance of names on parchments
Your name will appear on your parchment exactly as it appears in the University records. We print your surname in capital letters.
Each parchment is unique. All parchments contain parchment security features (PDF: 135KB) to prevent fraudulent use. Although the University’s trading name is Newcastle University, the name University of Newcastle upon Tyne is still used on degree parchments.
What to do if you haven't received your parchment
- Up to 6 weeks after you've completed your award
Sit tight – it could take this long to reach you.
- Between 6 weeks and 1 year after completion
Contact the Congregations Office.
- More than a year after completion
You'll need to apply for a duplicate copy of your parchment.
