We’ll produce your degree certificate 2-6 weeks after your final results have been awarded. If you receive your final results near the time of a graduation ceremony your degree certificate will be ready for you to collect on the day. If you receive your final results at any other time of year, we will contact you by email with options for delivery/collection. Your electronic degree certificate will be issued within one month of your final results being awarded.
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.
Students who graduate from July 2018 onwards will also receive an electronic Degree Certificate and Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR). All documents are issued via the Digitary CORE portal, a secure and trusted provider of electronic documents.
An email will be sent to your University email address to let you know when a document has been issued to you. Simply click on the link provided and follow the instructions.
