We have now resumed our print services for the obtaining of certificates. You can place orders using the links provided in the table.

All students are normally issued with one free paper version of their degree certificate upon graduation. You cannot obtain a degree certificate from Cambridge unless a degree has been conferred (awarded) at a degree ceremony either in person or in absence.

Online certificates

Degree certificates are also available online for those who have graduated since March 2020. All those who graduated since March 2020 should have received an email advising how to access the certificate. If you have not received an email, then please submit a question via: Online certificates will be available 10 working days following any given ceremony.

Online certificates are currently not available to anyone who graduated prior to March 2020.

Links to order your degree certificates and transcripts

Service required and link Prices Additional information

Paper version of Transcripts

£25, (further copies within the same order are available for purchase for £10 each here)

You must have purchased a single certificate in order to purchase additional copies. We advise that you check your transcript online before placing an order.

Paper version of Degree Certificates

£15 per degree

Your degree must have been conferred (awarded) in person or in absence at a degree ceremony for you to purchase a replacement certificate. This version is an exact replica of the original version of the certificate you received at your ceremony - the only difference will be the date of production which will be listed as the day that your order was processed.



Alternative design degree certificates with DHL



£55 per degree

Please note that you can only order an alternative degree certificate if your programme is conferred at a ceremony at Senate House. Allow up to 90 days for dispatch.

DHL delivery service

£15 per address

Only available for International addresses.

You should only purchase DHL if you are ordering a paper copy of a degree certificate or transcript – DHL should not be purchased alone.

Owing to high demand it may take up to 28 working days to process and dispatch paper certificates and transcripts. For the alternative design degree certificates, we advise to allow up to 3 months for the dispatch of these. To ensure a fair service to all we are unable to expedite orders.

Alternative Design degree certificate

The alternative design degree certificate is a larger document and more intricate than the replacement degree certificate. Essentially, this version is a display version as opposed to one that could be used for proof of qualifications. It is in B4 and hand calligraphed with your name hence the 3 month allowable dispatch time.

Alternative Design degree certificates are not available for all programmes. Orders for Alternative Design degree certificates are only available to those with a Bachelors, Masters or Doctorate degree. They are not available for Postgraduate Diplomas, Postgraduate Certificates or Non-Member Diploma and Certificate Awards. Please allow up to 3 months for dispatch. If you place an order and your degree does not fit the eligible criteria listed above, your order will be cancelled and a refund processed.

DHL delivery service

The option for DHL delivery service is at an additional cost of £15.00 per address. Choosing DHL delivery is strongly recommended to ensure safe delivery – especially for overseas addresses. The University does not accept responsibility or liability for items lost in transit.

DHL is available to purchase on the Online Store and will need to be added to your basket as a separate item to the degree certificate.

Where multiple deliveries are required, you will need to purchase DHL separately for each different address. For example, if you need delivery to 2 different addresses you would need to add 2x DHL delivery service to your basket which would total £30.00 on top of the amount for the document(s).

General information

Requests for degree certificates must be made by the student or former student themselves. Requests for degree certificates by a third party will not be actioned.

If your name has changed and you wish to update this on your certificate please submit your information here: You will need to attach a scanned copy of your passport ID page or other legal document to this email and this will need to be done before placing your order.

The Student Registry has no connection with GCSE or A-Level examinations, or overseas examinations. These are administered by Cambridge Assessment (previously known as the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate).
