Award certificates and results transcripts

Your certificate will be posted to your specified certificate address after you receive your results. We aim to post certificates out within 20 working days of the date the results are final, but ask you to bear in mind that we have a very large number to produce and distribute over the summer.

If you would like to check or update your certificate address, or would prefer to collect your certificate in person, please update this information in My Student Record via the My Certificate and Graduation page.

If you have any queries about your certificate, please contact

Results transcripts

  • Current students can print transcripts for free from My Student Record
  • Alumni can purchase a transcript, listing modules and marks, from the SHU store

Please be aware that if your transcript request is for a period of study prior to 2003 the University relies on paper based examination board records. In these cases we will make reasonable efforts to collate the transcript but please allow plenty of time before submitting your request.

Where there are gaps in our records we will aim to provide syllabus information and a letter explaining any gaps to a third party if necessary. Where the University is unable to provide a full transcript, a refund will be offered.

If you are a PhD graduate and you require proof of study, please request a verification letter or a duplicate certificate, as transcripts are not issued.
