With document issuing taking up to 8 weeks and the risk of documents being lost in transit, the university identified the challenges they face to provide their students and graduates with printed degree documents.

Cardiff University’s experience
Using our solutions
“Cardiff University has worked with Advanced Secure for many years and they continue to provide excellent support and innovation for the issuing of our secure degree certificates and transcripts.
Having adopted Digital Certificates early on, we have been able to stay ahead of the many challenges posed by the pandemic. Thanks to this, our students and graduates can access, share and verify their secure electronic certificates and transcripts from anywhere using their smartphone devices.
This has meant that our graduates can share their secure eDocuments with employers and other institutes for further study within days of their award being conferred. By providing our students and graduates with a self-service portal, we have been able to uphold our student satisfaction during these difficult times.
Furthermore, Digital Certificates have enabled our university’s registry department to provide an online service for document reprints, verification requests and eDocuments for our Alumni.
Advanced Secure have continued to work closely with us in order to refine and enhance the system to meet our changing requirements.”
