This article provides information on when you should receive your award parchment.

Award documents are produced on watermarked parchment paper with the University crest and appropriate signatures. Award documents issued from exam boards held in June/July, and not available for collection at a Graduation ceremony, will be posted during July and August by Royal Mail standard delivery UK and Royal Mail standard Airmail for overseas to the mailing/correspondence address (NOT home or local address fields) held on the student record.   Any changes made to your mailing/correspondence address must be made as soon as possible before your exam board is due to meet and can be made through your student portal. Your department of study will be able to confirm when the exam board for your programme of study is due to meet.

Postgraduate students completing their studies in September may have an exam board meeting between October and mid-December. Your department of study will be able to confirm when the exam board for your programme of study is due to meet. Award documents issued from postgraduate exam boards held during this time (and not available for collection at a winter Graduation ceremony) will be posted as soon as possible, after the exam board meets, by Royal Mail standard delivery UK and Royal Mail standard Airmail for overseas to the mailing/correspondence address (NOT home or local address fields) held on the student record.   Any changes made to your mailing/correspondence address must be made as soon as possible before your exam board is due to meet and can be made through your student portal. 

Any award decisions made at exam boards or by Chair’s Action Memo at any other time of year outside of the summer exam boards and postgraduate exam boards as indicated above will be issued by post to the mailing/correspondence address (NOT home or local address fields) held on the student record. These will be posted by Royal Mail standard delivery UK and Royal Mail standard Airmail for overseas addresses. 

Please Note: Standard delivery UK and standard Airmail are not recorded delivery or courier services and so no tracking data can be provided.

If you have not received your parchment within two months of your exam board taking place please contact parchments@port.ac.uk
