All taught students – including Visiting students – will receive their official University transcripts via our secure online ‘ShARe’ (Sheffield Authorised Records) system.
The system was built by Digitary, which is used by leading educational institutions around the world to issue electronic transcripts and other official academic documents online. University of Sheffield students benefit from the international connectivity that Digitary facilitates, including its direct integration with organisations such as World Education Services and Educational Perspectives.
We use ShARe to issue:
- electronic transcripts to Taught Postgraduate students and Visiting students (following course completion), and
- electronic Higher Education Achievement Reports (HEARs) to Undergraduate students (updated after every examination period).
Students can access documents securely online at any time, in any location, making it quicker and easier to view and share these, as well as reducing reliance on paper.
Using ShARe is free of charge, and does not require you to sign up. You will still be able to access ShARe after you have left the University.
All documents are original versions, which are issued by University officials and bear the signature of the University Secretary and University stamp. We do not issue hard copies of these documents unless you can demonstrate a specific need for one. This is why it is important to find out how to use ShARe before you finish your studies.
