Undergraduate Students

Where you are a current undergraduate student, we may not be able to provide a printed transcript between the start of the exam period and the release of your results. Instead, we can provide you with a Summary of Results.

Where you ordered a transcript during this period and we cannot produce it, your order will either be refunded or held until your results are released.

  • Spring semester results are available in early July.
  • Autumn semester results are available from mid-March.

Where you started after 2012, your results will be available through MUSE on your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).

Your final electronic HEAR serves the same purpose as a printed academic transcript and is accepted by many global organisations.

Postgraduate Taught Students

Where you are a current postgraduate taught student, we cannot issue you with your transcript or any official University document outlining your results until your final results have been approved by the Faculty Board.

Where you started after 2014, you will receive your official electronic transcript via ShARe once your degree has been awarded (usually between November and December).

Your electronic transcript serves the same purpose as a printed academic transcript and is accepted by may global organisations.

We may be able to issue you with a provisional Summary or Results before this time, please visit the page below for more information.
