A transcript is an official summary of your academic performance and progress to date. It will only include final marks confirmed by the appropriate Examination Board. A transcript may be required by prospective employers or educational institutions to which you are applying.
Important information - please read before contacting the Documents team
The eDocuments service relaunched in August and limited numbers of electronic final transcripts have been made available through the new service.

Note to third parties
Third parties who wish to validate transcripts received from the University of Oxford should note that transcript letters may be issued by colleges as an alternative to standard transcripts in some circumstances: these should be accepted as valid documents equivalent to the standard transcript. Colleges hold authority to issue these documents when the Degree Conferrals Team are unable to do so. Please refer to the table above for examples of situations when standard transcripts cannot be issued.
Ordering copies of final transcripts
You can order additional copies of your final transcript at a cost of £12 each through the University online shop. Transcripts ordered for delivery to the UK will be sent by Royal Mail first class post; orders for overseas locations will be sent by a tracked and signed for courier service at a cost of £15 for European addresses and £20 for the rest of the world. If you are expecting examination results, please wait until you receive your results in Student Self Service before requesting extra copies of a final transcript. Requests placed before your results are released may not include your final results.
Applications for transcripts must be made by you. Requests for copies of the transcript by a third party will not be actioned.
If you are required to provide a form (e.g. WES) after placing an order, send your form to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number.
Ordering copies of on-course transcripts
If you haven't yet completed your course, you can request copies of your on-course transcript. This will show your academic achievement to date but will not include a final classification. An on-course transcript will reflect the information you see in Student Self Service and is only available once you are entered for an assessment. If your assessments have not yet appeared in Student Self Service and you are still studying at the University, the enrolment certificate available through Student Self Service will act as a certification of attendance.
On-course transcripts can be ordered at a cost of £12 each online at the University online shop. Transcripts ordered for delivery to the UK will be sent by Royal Mail first class post; orders for overseas locations will be sent by a tracked and signed for courier service at a cost of £15 for European addresses and £20 for rest of world.
If you are applying for a course in a European university, most institutions will ask you to supply an academic transcript. However, some institutions may ask you to provide a diploma supplement. This document consists of the academic transcript, a statement quantifying your course in terms of European Credit Transfer Scheme (ECTS) credits, plus additional information describing the higher education system.
There are two credit systems: that used by UK universities, and the ECTS, used by a number of other European countries. We take each year of full-time study to equal 120 UK credits (undergraduate) and 180 UK credits (postgraduate) according to the Higher Education Credit Framework for England. In ECTS, this is equivalent to 60 credits for undergraduate study and 60-90 credits for postgraduate study. The University’s courses are not taught on a modular basis so we do not apply credit weightings to the individual components of your course.
Before ordering the diploma supplement please check that this is a requirement for your application and that we are able to produce them for your award. If we are unable to produce transcripts for your award (e.g. DPhil), we will not be able to produce diploma supplements for that award either. You can obtain a letter explaining this lack of transcript from your eDocuments account.
If you require a diploma supplement, they can be ordered through the University online shop for free. Diploma supplements will be sent directly to the institution you are applying to by a tracked and signed-for courier service, at a cost of £15 for European addresses. The supplement is available only to students who commenced their studies from Michaelmas term 2007 and who have successfully completed their studies. It is not suitable for use outside European universities. You can obtain a copy of the letter from the eDocuments service if you are eligible, but if you need this sent to another institution in physical form you can still order a hard copy.
If you have completed a part-time course and have queries regarding Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) credits, please contact the course team at the Department for Continuing Education.
