A transcript is a detailed history of your academic record at the University and shows all topics studied and the grades you have received.

The transcript also shows any credit that you have been granted for previous study and any prizes and awards that have been made.

Do I get a free copy of my transcript?

You will be provided with one free copy of your academic transcript at your graduation ceremony.  If you do not attend you can make arrangements for the transcript to be sent to you after the ceremony, along with your parchment.  Follow the steps below to purchase an additional copy (or copies) of your transcript.  Please note that copies obtained prior to your graduation will not include graduation details.

Can I purchase an additional copy (or copies) of my official transcript?

Additional copies of your official transcript may be purchased by following the steps detailed below.

Transcripts will usually take two working days - to prepare and verify - before they are posted ('Standard' service).   The University can provide a 'same day' service where your transcript will be available for collection at the time you place the order. There is an additional charge for this service and conditions apply, e.g. if you studied prior to 2001 and/or your records are archived it may not be possible to meet delivery deadlines.  Staff will advise you if this is the case and you will not be charged the service fee.

If you have a current enrolment you may also download a copy of your unofficial transcript from the Student Information System.  Log in to the Student Information System and click on the 'My Exams and Results' tab.  Click on the 'Get my unofficial transcript by email' button at the bottom of the page. Your unofficial transcript will be emailed to your University email address.

How much do transcripts cost?

I am a completing student, when should I request a copy of my official transcript?
