Guidelines for Former Students
All requests for personal information must be made in writing and signed by an authorised user, normally
the student who attended the institution. We will endeavour to deal with requests as soon as possible, but
you should allow up to 28 working days for your request to be processed and dispatched.
1. The certificate which the University issues as proof of the conferment of an award is a unique and
valuable document which should be carefully preserved by its recipient. Certified copies of award
certificates are not replacements for an original award certificate but, instead, can be produced in multiple
numbers and can often be utilised where proof of an award is required (e.g. for job / some VISA applications).
Certified copies are produced in the format currently in use and may not be a facsimile copy of the original.
2. Certified copies of certificates are only available for courses validated by Cheltenham & Gloucester
College of Higher Education (1992–2000) and University of Gloucestershire (2001–Present Day).
For older or external courses validated by the Council for National Academic Awards (now the Open
University Validation Services – www.open.ac.uk/validate ), University of Bristol (www.bristol.ac.uk ), or
BTEC/Edexcel (www.edexcel.org.uk), you will need to apply to their offices directly.
3. The University reserves the right not to issue a certified copy or to specify reasons for its decision.
4. The applicant MUST provide the institution with:
i) Payment of £5.00 per certified copy:
Either in the form of a cheque made payable to "University of Gloucestershire"
Or, alternatively, you can pay via our website www.ecommercegateway.co.uk/glos/store/
Once in the store select ‘Academic Registry’ from the list.
iii) a completed and signed request form. The signature on the form must be handwritten (a scanned
copy of a signed form is acceptable).
5. Verifications of Attendance/Student Status, copies of Academic Transcripts of Grades, Character
References and copies of Course Syllabus can be requested through the Transcript Requests Office via
completion of a Transcript Request application form.
Please apply directly to email@example.com. Fees may be applicable for some documents.
The University recognises its responsibility to preserve the confidentiality of data as required by the Data Protection
