University of Glasgow degree parchments are issued in Latin and now contain an English translation at the bottom of the parchment. If you received a parchment before the English translation was included, organisations and potential employers may request that you send a copy of your degree translated into English. You can organise this by requesting a parchment translation.

  • Graduates and registered students with previous degrees will be required to submit an application and pay a small fee. See below for further information.

Parchment Translations

Our parchment translations include a full English translation of the Latin text on your degree parchment. All hard copies of our parchment translations include a wet stamp and signature, we do not stamp digital documents. Please note that we do not produce or send copies of degree parchments, for this you will need to consult a Notary Public or the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
