Transcripts and Replacement Certificates

A transcript is a copy of your academic record. It lists the titles and marks of the modules you studied in each academic year. It gives your period of registration as a student, your degree date and classification. Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about how to get a copy of your transcript or certificate.

Frequently asked questions

How do I request my Transcripts?

In order to receive your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR), which is essentially your transcript, you will need to activate it before graduation.

Your HEAR includes information about the programme you studied, your modules of study and results, any other university recognised achievements and your final degree award so it is essential that you activate it before graduating.

To activate your HEAR please search for an email from Gradintelligence in your Bradford inbox which will include an activation link and instructions on how to complete the process.

If you do not activate your HEAR you will not receive one upon graduating. This is an important document which you can share in support of further study and job applications to evidence your credentials.

If you have any questions please email hear@bradford.ac.uk.

To request official 'printed' copies of your Transcripts, please visit the University of Bradford online store.

How do I request a Replacement certificate?

To request a Replacement certificate, you need to visit the University of Bradford online store and place an order with Student Registry Services.

Please note that we can issue a Replacement certificate only if the original certificate was lost or destroyed and you have provided us with proof of identity (e.g. passport, birth certificate).

What is a Transcript?

An academic transcript is the official record of a student's academic progress at the University of Bradford.

What information is included in a Transcript?

A Transcript includes details of all the modules you have taken in each year of study (i.e. module titles, corresponding marks and credits), and confirms your period of registration as a student at the University of Bradford, your degree date and classification.

Why might I need a Transcript?

You might need your Transcript to apply for graduate courses, for employment or emigration purposes.

When do my Transcripts become available?

Your official electronic University of Bradford transcript is available approximately three weeks after your graduation ceremony has taken place.

You will receive an email at that time with full information and guidance on how to access your online documents.

Please note that Transcripts are only available to students on taught courses and are only available if you have graduated or completed your studies.

Can I have my Transcripts in stamped and sealed envelopes?

Some universities and colleges (particularly those in the USA), require applicants to provide a copy of their Transcripts in a stamped and sealed envelope as part of their application process.

We can provide Transcripts in such sealed envelopes with the University stamp to prove that the document is authentic, which can be posted to specific addresses (up-to-two per online order).

Please place an order for Transcripts and you will find this option when completing the online order.
