Transcripts and statements

Transcripts are available to current and former students. Statements are available to former students who require proof of their studies and award (where applicable).

Digital Proof of Award

A Digital Proof of Award will be automatically sent to your graduation email address, within 3 working days of your award being published. Find out when your final results will be available. 
 

What is included on the Digital Proof of Award?

The Digital Proof of Award confirms your basic personal details, attendance dates, programme of study and the qualification, classification achieved and award date. A former student statement includes the same information as A Digital Proof of Award, so you do not need to apply for this separate document, unless you have specifically been asked to obtain additional copies. 


What should I do if I have not received my Digital Proof of Award?

Please allow 3 working days from the date that your results are released before enquiring.

Check the email account you provided when registering your graduation choice. This is not your university of Leeds student email account. We would recommend that you check your spam and junk folders too. 

If you did not register a graduation email address with the university, we will not be able to issue your Digital Proof of Award.

If you still have not received your Digital Proof of Award after checking the above, please contact the Student Information Service for further assistance.
 

Transcripts

What is included on my Transcript?

Your transcript includes details of all the modules you have taken in each year of study, including module titles, corresponding marks, and credits (for modular programmes). It also provides a record of whether you have undertaken a year in industry, or period of study abroad. Provisional marks do not appear on your transcript. 
Your transcript is a complete academic record, so we are unable to amend or omit any information on it.

When will I receive my Transcript? 

Students studying a degree programme 

Your school may release results, which have been validated by an Examination Board,  throughout the year. We may not be able to provide a full transcript until the end of the academic year. 

Current students can apply for a transcript online

If you are a final year undergraduate student, and you are awaiting your final results,  please do not apply for a current student transcript . Students who have successfully completed their degree programme will receive their final transcript and degree certificate at graduation. If you choose not to attend graduation, these documents will be posted to you. 

Study Abroad students (incoming) 

Students who have undertaken a study abroad programme should read about exams and transcripts

International Foundation Year 

Students who have completed the International Foundation Year will receive a final, digital transcript by the end of July. If you are re-sitting in August, you will receive your transcript in September.

Former students

Students who have successfully completed a degree programme will receive their transcript and degree certificate at graduation. If you choose not to attend graduation, these documents will be posted to you. 

Students who have completed, or have permanently withdrawn from their programme, can apply for additional copies of their former student transcript.

Transcripts are not available for former taught postgraduate students who graduated before July 1992 as marks are not held for these students. Please apply for a former student statement.

Provisional results

Provisional results will not appear on your transcript. You can view your provisional and final results through Minerva. The Results and Resit Application pages are not available to view at certain times of the year when marks and awards are being processed by the Assessment & Progress Team. During this period, we are unable to issue a transcript, which includes your marks for the current academic year. The dates when you may be affected can be viewed in the Student Calendar

If you have a question about marks that appear on Minerva, or on your transcript, please contact your teaching school using the School Contacts information, or the Student Information Service.

 

Statements

Students who have recently been awarded will receive a Digital Proof of Award by email. This document contains the same information as a Statement, so please only apply if you have specifically been asked to obtain additional copies.   

A statement is an official document that confirms your basic personal details, attendance dates, programme of study and, if applicable, the qualification, classification achieved and award date.  

You may need a statement as a supporting document to verify your degree in your home country. Please check with your embassy or ministry of education whether this is a requirement. 

Former students who have completed their studies, or have permanently withdrawn from their programme, can apply for a former student statement.  

 

Academic verifications  

An Academic Verification is a document which confirms your basic programme and award details where applicable. Academic verifications are not sent to students but to third parties, such as employers and other institutions.  

Third party organisations requiring academic verification for a University of Leeds student need to register with Prospects Hedd.

Former students who require a document to verify their degree should apply for a former student statement.

Current students who require proof of their student status should apply for a Registration Status Certificate online.
