TRANSCRIPTS (HEAR)

The Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) details both your academic and extracurricular accomplishments. It replaces our traditional degree transcript and offers a much more rounded perspective on how you used your time at Glasgow, and better supports you in demonstrating your potential to employers.

  • Transcripts are free for registered students.
  • Former students will be required to submit an application and pay a fee (update: we are currently waiving processing fees in light of current circumstances). See the former students section below for further information.

Our transcripts provide an overview of your studies at The University of Glasgow. Registered students can produce their own transcripts using their MyCampus Student Center.

Bachelor of Education or Postgraduate Certificate in Education Transcripts Prior to 1999
If you studied a BEd or PGCE at Notre Dame College of Education, Craiglockhart College of Education or St Andrews College (Bearsden) prior to 1999 then you will need to complete a separate Pre-1999 Education Transcript application form. 

Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing School Transcripts Prior to 1996
Please note that some transcripts for students who studied with the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing prior to 1996 are produced by the Medical School Library and then sent via post by the Student Services Enquiry Team.
