In addition, your application should be accompanied by either a copy of a marriage or divorce certificate, or a Deed Poll certificate. Scanned copies of supporting documentation are acceptable
Current students who notify us of a change of name after they have registered their intention to graduate should be aware that it may not always be possible to graduate using their new name(s) and should check with the Graduations Team, Registry, accordingly

If you wish to request a change be made to your nationality, please be aware that in accordance with Scottish Government fee regulations, your fee status cannot be changed once you are on programme, except in exceptional circumstances.
