If you have nominated a friend to collect your certificate on your behalf through SAMIS they must bring photo identification with them. They will be asked to sign a release form detailing that they assume responsibility for your certificate from the University of Bath.
  • From the December ceremonies through to March graduands will be offered the opportunity to have their certificates sent by (unregistered) post but may choose to collect them in person or to wait, if eligible (see Student Eligibility & Attendance), for the appropriate Award Ceremony.
  • In the summer, eligible students (see Student Eligibility & Attendance) are invited to attend the appropriate Award Ceremony and to receive their certificates there. Any certificates remaining after the Award Ceremonies will be posted, or can be collected by arrangement with the SREO.
  • It is the date of the Board of Studies' approval of an award which determines when a certificate is produced and offered. Graduands will be considered to have graduated from the date of the Board of Studies which approves their awards and not the date of their award ceremony.
  • If you need a copy of your certificate please follow this link.
