You can order duplicate transcripts and replacement degree certificates online. Recent graduates can view and send the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
All official documentation is managed and by Student Administration. They should be contacted directly if you have any queries related to the information published below.
For those who graduated before summer 2012 the documentation available varies depending on the degree held and the date of graduation. We will send you the appropriate version of your academic transcript. Your academic transcript will provide details of degree examinations passed, and, for certain categories of student, the grade and mark awarded.
Recent graduates can view and send their HEAR (transcript) electronically via the Alumni Portal.
Your academic statement will confirm the title of your degree, year of graduation and class of Honours (if applicable). A statement can only be issued to graduates. Graduates from 2012 onwards can view and send their academic statement electronically via the Electronic Document Service.
Certified copies of degree certificates
We can provide certified copies of degree certificates for all University of Edinburgh graduates. You cannot order certified copies of your degree certificate unless you have the original document in your possession.
Replacement degree certificates
Duplicate degree certificates can be ordered as replacements for those stolen, damaged or lost. Please note that only one replacement can be ordered and certificates will only be sent directly to the applicant and not to a third party.
Third party verification
Student Administration can also confirm dates of attendance and degree classification of graduates for employers.
Document legalisation and verification
If you are going to use British documents overseas, for business or personal reasons, it is possible you will be asked to have your documents legalised before they can be accepted. This process is not carried out by the University but by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
