Change your gender

How to change the gender stated on your record as a prospective, current or existing student.

Current students and graduates

You can book an appointment with the Student Administration Service who will explain how to change the gender on your student record.

Please bring with you any supporting evidence.

We can also talk to you about the support available, manage any administration changes, and liaise on your behalf with other University departments/services.

Once we’ve processed your request we can also arrange for any replacement degree certificates and transcripts to be issued in your new name, if required.

You may have to provide evidence of your qualifications as part of your visa application. If the name/gender on your qualifications doesn’t match your current/chosen name on your CAS application, you must also submit a legal document confirming your change of name.
