Degree Certificates and Transcripts

Owing to high demand it may take up to 28 working days to dispatch transcripts

Applications for copies of degree certificates and transcripts must be made by the student/former student themselves. Requests for copies of degree certificates or transcripts by a third party will not be actioned; this is because some of the information contained within the transcript is not published data.

Requests for all orders will be dealt with in strict chronological order of receipt.

The Student Registry has no connection with GCSE / A-Level examinations or overseas examinations. These are administered by Cambridge Assessment (previously known as the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate). For information on these topics (including past exam results) please visit the Cambridge Assessment website.

Certificates

Original certificates for degrees are issued without charge to all persons proceeding to degrees. If you graduate in the Senate-House, your certificate is presented to you immediately after your degree is conferred. The University's Photography and Illustration Service provide a degree certificate framing service on the day. If you do not graduate in person, your certificate will be sent to your College.

Replacement or supplementary copies of your original degree certificate will be charged at £15.00. Please allow 28 working days for dispatch.

Alternative design certificates bear the arms of the University printed in colour with details hand written by a calligrapher. The dimensions are 350mm x 244mm which is larger than the original certificate. They are available to order at a charge of £40.00. Please allow up to 3 months for dispatch.

Transcripts

Tripos paper marks have only been collected for transcripts since 2003 and there are gaps in some subjects. Marks for other examinations, where available, have been attached to records after this date. For example marks for MPhil exams have only been collected since 2006. To see if marks are available for your course, check your unofficial transcript by logging on to CamSIS Self-service or CamSIS Extended Self-Service. Where marks are unavailable, a Proof of Study letter may provide an alternative option.
