Academic transcripts


UPDATE: 19 March 2020  

As a result of the government guidance regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19), the university is currently unable to produce official transcripts and award verification letters. Please see for full details. This situation is under review and we will update this page as and when it changes.

An academic transcript is an official document that shows:

  • The units which have been taken in each year of study
  • The assessment and reassessment (as appropriate) grades for each unit
  • The total number of credits gained in each unit taken and in each year of study
  • The degree awarded, degree classification and date of award (where applicable)

Transcripts are provided in sealed envelopes with the University stamp to prove that the document is authentic.  Each copy has an accompanying sheet explaining the grading system.

How to request a transcript

If you would like to request an undergraduate or postgraduate academic transcript, please visit our online shop. You should use this link for all transcript requests, even if no payment is required.  

You will need to include your student number, name, date of birth and programme of study. Please also state whether you require a hard copy or a PDF version, the number of transcripts you would like and the address that you require them to be sent to.

How much do they cost?

You are entitled to one free copy of your transcript each year while you are a student, and up to a year after graduation. Any additional copies are then charged at £10 for the first copy and £5 per copy after that, if you graduated from 2005 onwards.

If you graduated before 2005 the initial cost is £20 and then £5 per copy.

We regret that academic transcripts cannot be issued until payment has been received (if appropriate).

How long will they take?

Normally transcripts are prepared within 10 working days from the receipt of the application, except during busy periods following graduation and the autumn term. It is therefore a good idea to order your transcripts as early as possible to ensure they are ready in time for any deadlines.
