Early Release of Certificates prior to July 2020 Graduation Ceremony

Upon completion of your course you will be sent an academic transcript that will state your award. This document is sufficient evidence of your achievement for most purposes. Please contact registry@qmu.ac.uk if you have not received your academic transcript.

If you completed your course between 9th July 2019 and 31st December 2019 and require your degree certificate prior to the Graduation Ceremony in July 2020 you may apply for an early release of your certificate.

You will need to wait until after the meeting of Senate after you have completed your course to request early release.

Senate meets on 30th October 2019 and 11th December 2019.

After the meeting of Senate, please email registry@qmu.ac.uk providing us with your postal address and confirming that you have contacted our Finance Department on 0131 474 0000 and paid the graduation fee.

  • If you do not want to attend the Graduation Ceremony in July 2020, the graduation fee is £25.
  • If you want to attend the Graduation Ceremony in July 2020, the graduation fee is £45. You will receive an invitation to attend the July 2020 Ceremony along with other eligible students in May 2019. At the ceremony you will cross the stage and receive a certificate folder on stage with the other graduates, however as you will have already received your certificate early, the certificate folder will be empty. There will be no further graduation fee to pay, but there will be gown hire fees to be paid and there may be a fee for extra tickets depending on how many guests you intend to bring. Information on this will be supplied in your invitation email.

Once we have received confirmation of your address and payment, and your award has been ratified at a meeting of Senate we will send your degree certificate to you.
