An academic transcript is an official document that shows:
- Units taken in each year of study
- Assessment and reassessment (as appropriate) grades for each unit
- Total number of credits gained in each unit taken and in each year of study
- Degree awarded, degree classification and date of award (where applicable)
If you require a statement to confirm your attendance at the University, please contact the Student Services Reception: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to a copy of your Academic Transcript, please contact the Student Services Reception: email@example.com
When requesting a transcript please provide your student ID number. If you do not have your student ID number we will require your full name, date of birth and also confirmation of the degree studied.
If you registered on a programme of study at the University after autumn 2004 and have since received an award, you should have received a 'diploma supplement'. Your diploma supplement contains your transcript together with contextual information about your programme and the UK Higher Education system, in a standard format which is shared across the EU.
Diploma supplements are managed by the Examinations Office. If you would like another copy or replacement of your Diploma Supplement, you can order this on their online store. If you require further information on Diploma Supplements, please visit the Examinations webpage.
All educational background checks are carried out through an external organisation, Hedd. Hedd is the UK Higher Education's official service for candidate verification and university authentication. It provides enquirers with the ability to verify a candidate's academic credentials. The remit of the service is to protect UK universities, employers and graduates from degree fraud.
If you need certified copies of your certificate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. Please specify how many copies you require and provide your preferred postal address. You must include a scanned colour copy of your original certificate. We are not permitted to provide any electronic copies of degree certificates due to our anti-fraud measures.
In some cases you may need to have documents ‘legalised’ by asking the UK government to confirm that a UK public official’s signature, seal or stamp on the document is genuine. Such a certification is called an apostille (internationally) or notarisation (domestically). This can be done online via the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
For further information, please visit: gov.uk
The Graduation Office are not involved in any aspect of the ‘legalisation’ process, however you can request a certified copy of your degree certificate which can be used for this purpose.
