Receiving your Certificate

Certificates are not linked to a particular graduation ceremony but to University Awards and Progression Boards. The certificates are produced on a timetable depending when a student is awarded. It is therefore very important that your permanent address is kept up to date at all times of the year using the online facility.

Certificates are produced between six and eight weeks after each Board. For Roehampton Online students, your certificate will be posted by your Student Support Team. For further information please contact them on For enquiries from campus based students, please email
