An academic transcript is the official record of degree examinations passed, and, for certain categories of student, the grade and mark awarded.
Sending an electronic version of your transcript: Most current students and graduates (from 2012 onwards) can view and send their Higher Education Achievement Report (Transcript) electronically via the Electronic Document Service.
The Electronic Document Service will send an email to your recipient with a secure link they can use to download your transcript. Please confirm with the recipient that they are willing to accept this.
Sending a paper copy of your transcript: To send a paper copy, place an order via the Academic Transcript Order Form and we will mail your transcript within 10 working days.
If you have trouble accessing the Electronic Document Service from Euclid: We have provided instructions about accessing the HEAR/transcript for users having difficulty using the Electronic Document Service.
GRADUATES AND FORMER STUDENTS
Graduates from 2012 onwards: University of Edinburgh graduates from 2012 onwards can view and send their Academic Transcript/HEAR electronically via the Electronic Document Service. Your recipient will receive an email containing a secure link they can use to download your transcript. Please confirm with the recipient that they are willing to accept this.
Graduates prior to 2012: For those who graduated from the University before 2012, place an order via the Academic Transcript Order Form. The content of the transcript varies depending on the degree held and the date of graduation. We will send you the appropriate version and will forward your order to the appropriate School/College if we are unable to provide a transcript from our office.
Graduates holding MBChB degrees: Please use the form prepared by the MVM College Office to order your transcript.
PhD degrees: We cannot produce transcripts for research degrees. Please order an Academic Statement.
ECA and Moray House before respective mergers with University of Edinburgh: Please see the Transcript Information page to find out how to order a transcript.
What is the link to order an academic transcript?
If you have read the above information and cannot access your transcript directly through the Electronic Document Service on Euclid, you should request a transcript through our Academic Transcript Order Form.
Can a third party request a transcript on my behalf?
Academic transcripts can only be requested by the student/graduate and not by a third party. If a potential employer or other third party needs to verify your degree, this will be handled by an outside firm as described in our instructions for Third Party Verifications.
How do I send a transcript directly to a potential employer or academic institution?
- Please confirm with the recipient that they are willing to accept this before ordering.
- If you would like your academic transcript to be sent to a prospective employer, or to another academic institution as a PDF, you must provide the email address of the recipient on your order. The email address must be an institutional or business email address.
- Please note that if you send a PDF to your personal email account rather than a third-party, the transcript will not be acceptable as an "official" version.
Employers can ask to confirm dates of attendance and degree classification of students/graduates by making a Third Party Verification request.
Can I have a copy of my transcript sent to myself?
We can send you a PDF or hard copy of your transcript. Please be aware that some employers or academic institutions do not accept transcripts that were delivered originally to the student, so please confirm with the recipient before sending a copy that was delivered to you. If you are a current student or graduate since 2012, please use the Electronic Document Service to download a PDF version of your HEAR transcript.
I graduated from the University before 2012. How can I confirm whether you can provide me with an academic transcript?
If before making your request you wish to check whether we can provide you with an academic transcript, you can find information on the Student Administration Transcript Information page.
