Certificate Collection Information

For students still studying at the Academy, certificates will be issued during Academic year, but not before December

For students no longer studying at the Academy, certificates will be available for collection at Reception from the start of December between 9am-3pm.  When collecting certificates, students must bring photographic ID with them.  Students who are unable to collect certificates in person may nominate somebody else to do so on their behalf.  The nominated person must bring a signed letter from the student giving permission and their own photographic ID.

It is essential that you collect your certificates and retain them for life, as potential employers, colleges or universities will request to see them.

Certificates are kept in the Academy for two years only; please collect them as soon as possible.


Private Candidates are welcomed by the Academy. Please visit the Private Candidates section for further details.
