A digital certificate is an electronic document that evidences a candidate's achievement in a Trinity College London exam. It looks the same and carries the same validity as a traditional paper certificate. However, digital certificates offer many benefits to candidates, including:
Accredible is a leading platform for creating, issuing, and managing secure digital certificates and badges. Trinity has engaged with Accredible, a trusted company, to offer this service.
On successfully passing a Trinity exam and when the digital certificate is available, the candidate (or their parent or legal guardian) will be sent an email with a weblink to the digital certificate available through the online Accredible platform.
Candidates also have the option to use an account in the Accredible platform to access a range of features, including the ability to share their digital certificate.
Candidates will have the option to purchase a paper certificate if they wish to hold a hard copy (excluding digital music theory exams). The content and quality of our paper certificates have not changed, and optional purchase instructions will be provided to candidates when they receive their digital certificate.
So that we can deliver the digital certificate securely to candidates, you will be required to enter a valid personal email address for each candidate during the enrolment process.
For those candidates under 18, the email address of a parent/guardian must be entered.
Further information about how to enter this information is available via your Trinity contact.
For information about how Trinity collects and uses personal information please refer to our privacy statement. This privacy statement can also be shared with the candidate and their parents/legal guardians.

Registered Exam Centres will still receive information about their students' results when available.
We recognise that this is important to our centres and are planning to provide a facility for centres to order paper certificates for their candidates soon. Initially, this will be via a credit card purchase, which we hope to be available around the end of the year. In 2024 we will add the ability for centres to be invoiced for their certificate orders.
Digital certificates will be available 24-48 hours after results are validated by Trinity. Candidates will receive a notification via email when their digital certificate is available in their secure Accredible account.
Please note: The time frame of results being available will depend on the exam that the candidate undertook.
If candidates wish to hold an original hard copy, they still have the option to purchase a paper certificate.
The content and quality of our paper certificates have not changed and optional purchase instructions will be provided to candidates when they receive an email notification to let them know that their digital certificate is ready. Trinity charges a small fee for this service.
