Issue of Certificates and Transcripts - Your Award Documents

The Transcript

A Transcript lists the modules undertaken, credit value and grades achieved during each academic session of study.  The overall result obtained will also be indicated.  You will receive a transcript upon the successful completion of your programme of study (your course).  In the meantime, you can view your module results via myUCLan.  

The Certificate

The Award Certificate details the programme of study (your course), the overall result obtained and the date of the University award.

NB. Some professional CPD courses are School awards and certification will be issued by the School rather than the Assessment & Awards Office.

Following completion of your course, all award documents will be posted to the permanent (home) address detailed on our records, so please ensure that your address details are always current and correct.
