Awards and Replacements Certificates

This page provides information on the different processes  regarding how to obtain awards and replacement certificates.

The processes are dependent on the year awards were granted; Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) was granted degree awarding powers in 1992 and as a result we are only able to process award related queries where the award was granted after September 1992. Details of obtaining awards are provided in the following sections:
