Delivery Options

This page details the rates for both UK (including England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and all BFPO addresses) and International delivery (including Europe and the Rest of the World).

During the application process you will be asked to specify how you would like your assessment to be sent to you. Please ensure as this stage that your delivery address details are correct. UK NARIC will take no responsibility for assessments with incorrect information should they not reach you.

Note: Our prices for Royal Mail and international post/airmail delivery options have been unchanged since 2012. To reflect rising postage costs, for all orders received on or after 18 September 2017, we are increasing the price on these delivery options by £0.50. The price for DHL courier delivery remains unchanged.

The options for UK delivery are as follows:

Service Cost Estimated Delivery time
Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed™** £8.50 Guaranteed to arrive before 1.00pm
the next working day*
(restrictions apply on some postcodes)
Royal Mail Signed For™** £4.00 1-3 working days*
First Class mail £2.00 1-3 working days*

Please note that delivery times to British Forces Post Office (BFPO) addresses are dependent on the BFPO schedules.

The options for International delivery are as follows:

Service Cost Estimated Delivery time
DHL courier service** £80.00 1-6 working days*
depending on the delivery destination
International Signed For™** £8.50 3 working days* to Western Europe
5 working days* to Eastern Europe
7 working days* for the Rest of the World
Standard Airmail £4.00 3-7 working days* (Note: we are receiving reports that Standard Airmail can be very slow; also, there is no tracking with this service. Therefore we recommend using International Signed For or DHL – these are faster and trackable.)

* Working days are Monday - Friday (except Public and Bank Holidays).

** This service requires a signature upon delivery. Ensure there is someone present to sign for it. If delivery is delayed because there is nobody to sign for the package, you will not be refunded the delivery charge.

*VAT is payable within the EU
