Replacement Certificate (1993 onwards)

Replacement Certificate (1993 onwards)


Certificates issued by Teesside University, as proof of the conferment of an award, are unique legal documents. Only one copy of your certificate parchment can exist at any one time. Please only order a replacement certificate if your original is lost or damaged, as when a replacement parchment is issued your original document will become void.

Official Name on Certificate
We can only issue replacement certificates in the name in which your award was conferred. Exceptions will be made for administrative errors and the provisions of the Gender Recognition Act 2004.

If you have changed your name following completion of your course (for example through marriage or by Deed Poll) and wish to demonstrate to a prospective employer or education provider that your degree certificate belongs to you, supporting documentation showing the name change should accompany the certificate.

Replacement certificates while having precisely the same standing as the original parchment, are produced in the format currently in use and may not be a facsimile of the original.

We will aim to process your request within 4 weeks.
