An official transcript, detailing examinations taken and results achieved, is issued automatically to all graduating students and sent to their contact addresses as held on PORTICO.

Transcripts for affiliate students are issued automatically upon the students’ completion of their study at UCL and are despatched as follows: -

  • JYA, Exchange and Erasmus Students – transcripts are issued to the students’ home universities.
  • Independent affiliate students – transcripts are posted to the students’ contact addresses.

Assessment and Student Records can produce additional transcripts for students on taught programmes as well as for affiliate students via the UCL Transcript Shop.

Transcripts are not produced for research degrees, but research students may instead obtain a Statement of Student Status from the Student Centre.

Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)

Undergraduate students (excluding affiliates, MBBS, IOE and some MPharm students) who commenced their studies in or after September 2011 will have a Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) made available to them online each summer. The HEAR is an electronic transcript of your verified academic and non-degree related achievements.

New students will be invited to register for this facility provided by our HEAR provider - Gradintel - during their first year of study and throughout their studies.

Students can share their HEAR as a secure electronic token with third parties, who can print it, via their registered Gradintel account, but it should be noted that the printed version is no longer a verified record by UCL. Certified printed copies of the HEAR are available upon request.

For further information regarding the HEAR (including whether you are eligible), please refer to the webpage at

How do I request a transcript?

You can request copies of your transcript from the UCL Transcript Shop. You will be required to register with the Transcript Shop to order your transcript(s) if you have not already done so. You will receive an email to your registered email address when your transcript order has been received by UCL.

Transcripts can not be provided for the following:

  • Research Degrees - please contact the Student Centre for a statement of award;
  • MBBS Clinical Degrees - please contact the Medical School for these. Transcripts for IBSc and Pre-Clinical Degrees can be made via the UCL Transcript Shop;
  • Transcripts for students who sturied at SSEES prior to the merger in 1999 - please contact SSEES directly.
  • Transcripts for students who studied at the School of Pharmacy prior to the merger in 2011 - please contact the School of Pharmacy directly.
Is there a fee?

The fee for processing transcripts is £10 per transcript (as of 12 August 2015).
These fees include postage to either a UK address or airmail postage to all overseas addresses.

How long will it take to receive my transcript?

Requests for transcripts should be made in good time, and at least 10 working days before they are required. Assessment and Student Records will aim to process requests within 10 working days of receipt of your order from the UCL Transcript Shop. You will need to allow extra time for the posting of transcripts, especially to overseas destinations. At certain times the processing time may be longer, for example during the Main Examination Period (April - June).

Please note that requests for transcripts of academic records dating from the period prior to 1993 will take longer as these records were not computerised and the transcripts have to be produced manually using paper records retrieved from the UCL archives.

Point to Note:
  • A transcript is an official document containing the UCL seal and CANNOT be emailed or faxed.
