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 have used your time at Glasgow, and better supports you in demonstrating your potential to employers.

  • Transcripts are available for free, via self service or request, for registered students.
  • Former students are required to submit an application and pay a fee (note: we are currently waiving processing fees in light of current circumstances). See the former students section below for further information.

Covid Service Impact

Due to the remote service we are currently operating we are producing digital unstamped documents for all document requests submitted, these will be sent directly to your email address.

Digital documents are now more widely accepted due to the ongoing Covid pandemic, if you have any concerns please check with the intended recipient of the document.

We are currently waiving processing charges for former students. Fees for document requests are normally £10 for one copy and £1 for each additional copy.
