The documentation available to Graduates varies depending on the degree held and the date of graduation. We will send you the appropriate version of your academic transcript or academic statement.
Current students should check the information on Table B below.
Please note that these documents can only be obtained by the Graduate and not by a third party.
Your documents may be posted from Academic Registry up to 10 working days from the date of order.
All orders are handled on a first-come, first served, basis.
Please note that we can only process orders for which payment is also received. Orders made without payment will be cancelled.
Transcripts provide information about your studies while at the University. Table A explains the information provided on each type of document. To place an order, follow the link to information on Ordering & Payment Options
|Transcripts £5 per copy||Statements £4 per copy|
|A Transcript provides details of degree examinations passed, and, for certain categories of student, the grade and mark awarded.||A Statement simply states the degree passed, year of graduation and class of Honours (if applicable).|
|Before ordering, please check Table B below which confirms Transcript information Registry is unable to provide and who to contact if we do not hold the information.||A statement cannot be issued in advance of a degree being awarded at a graduation ceremony.|
If you want your order sent to more than one recipient you must place a new order for each postal address. For example, if you want 4 transcripts to go to one address, place one order. If you want 4 transcripts sent to 4 different addresses you must place 4 separate orders.

|Undergraduates graduating prior to October 1988||Registry can provide a transcript, however, prior to 1988 marks were not released, so course results will not be included. Prior to 1984 the University did not operate a common-marking scheme so examination grades are not available on transcripts.
