What is a degree certificate, and why is it important?A degree certificate is an academic document that proves you have successfully completed a course of study at a recognised educational institution and you are now ready for employment within your field.
Degree certificates typically contain the name of the institution awarding the degree, your name, level of qualification awarded, subject studied and year(s) of study.
How do I get my degree certificate?Your institution will have your degree certificate or diploma prepared in time for your graduation. You can usually collect it during your graduation or after the ceremony. However, if you were not able to attend your graduation ceremony, most institutions will post it to you securely after the graduation date.
When is a degree certificate or diploma required?
A degree certificate is much more than a piece of paper to hang on the wall. It will help advance your career, so make sure you keep it to hand. The most common scenarios where you will need it include:
- To apply for a job in the future
- To apply to further your studies
- To get a job promotion
- To apply for a visa for a job overseas
- To apply for residency or citizenship in some countries
When it comes to living or working in a country other than the one you qualified in, institutions or employers may ask to see a certified translation of your degree certificate.

Once you have completed your studies abroad:
If you have studied abroad and want to make sure your certificate is recognised back home, the best tip we can give you is to get it legalised and translated before you go! These two steps will also be essential if your next move takes you to a country with a different language. Remember the difficulty and amount of time it can take to find certified translation services in a new country? Better get it done while you are at it!
The most common documents you will be required to translate are the degree certificate and the academic transcript, which is why Dialexy has designed the Student certified translation package. However, if you only need to translate your degree certificate, we can do that too. Upload your document to our platform and we will give you an instant quote (typically around £30-£50).
