Parchment Information

From October 2020 all original award parchments will be available digitally following conferring.  You will be able to access your parchment in the same way that you currently access your transcripts at 

As parchments cannot be distributed until after the conferring ceremonies have taken place, all parchments will be available to access, print and download from Monday 2nd November.  This change to a digital original parchment provides you with a safe way to store, access and print your parchment to be used as part of your portfolio for existing and prospective employers, colleges and other agencies.
