Information about academic transcripts and how to get them.

What is a transcript?

A transcript is a summary of a student's academic performance and progress to date. It lists the modules that you took and the marks you obtained, providing a more detailed overview of your academic achievements than your degree certificate. You may need a copy of your transcript for employment, further education or immigration purposes.

How can I get a transcript?

Official transcripts are charged at £5 per copy and can be ordered from the University of Birmingham Online Shop. Most students and alumni will be able to obtain an official transcript in this way. However, if you started your course before 1997, it may not always be possible for a full transcript to be produced. See the links below for full details:

Erasmus and exchange students

The International Office will automatically send an official transcript to your home university once all of your marks have been confirmed. You can request one additional free copy of your transcript for your own records. You will be emailed a transcript request form shortly before the end of your studies; it is important that you complete this to confirm the modules that you have attended and that you expect to receive a mark for. Please return the completed form to the address given on the form and we will post your transcript out to you.
