A transcript is an official record of your confirmed academic results and can be used for third party verification purposes, e.g. job applications, further study / visa applications, solicitor checks.
Final-year students will receive their degree certificate and a copy of their official transcript to their home address within 3 months from the date of award.
Current students, final-year students, affiliate students and alumni can order an e-transcript which is an official electronic version of their transcript and which can be used for third party verification purposes. Final-year students can also download a self-serve e-transcript from Portico.
Please note: E-transcripts for current Post Graduate students completing reassessments will be unavailable to order from Monday 19th February to Monday 18th March while Sub-Board of Examiners meetings are taking place.
During this period, if you require evidence of your provisional grades, you should contact your department. Faculty approved reassessment results will be released on Friday 15th March and E-transcript orders may be placed from Monday 18th March.
If you have been entered into the Late Summer Assessment Period your transcript order will be placed on hold until your reassessment results have been released.
