This page provides information about how to view and share your certificate details and how to order a replacement or authenticated copy of your certificate.

Replacement certificate

A replacement degree certificate may only be requested if the original has been lost or destroyed (there can only ever be one degree certificate in circulation at any one time).

You can apply for a replacement certificate online at a cost of £20.00.

Authenticated copy of certificate

We can authenticate a copy of a degree certificate by stating on it that it is a true copy, signing it and stamping it with the University stamp.

To apply for an authenticated copy:

  1. Purchase an Authentication of Degree Certificate Request online at a cost of £6.00
  2. Email a scanned copy of your degree to csao@kent.ac.uk
