Documents (Current Students)

Degree Certificate and HEAR

At the end of your programme, you will receive an official degree parchment as proof of your award.

From 2018 Undergraduate* and Postgraduate Taught students can also access their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) online. This contains all the information a Transcript of Study does, plus extra, such as academic awards received and extra-curricular activities pursued.

This document is digitally signed, verified and easily shared with third parties via Digitary Core. For more information please see here.

HEARs are only updated at the end of each stage, once the Board of Examiners have met. If you require confirmation of semester 1 marks then a Transcript of studies will be required.

*Except MBBS and BDS students, please see your School Office for verification documents.
