Certificates and transcripts

Graduate holding a certificate folder and awards programme.

Find out how to get a certificate or transcript of your studies at UAL.

Your degree certificate and transcript prove that you completed your studies at UAL. They show what you’ve achieved to prospective employers and other officials.

As we are working offsite, our services have changed. Please check this guidance carefully.

Receiving your certificate 2021

If you completed your studies in summer 2021

We are posting the remaining certificates for summer 2021 during August. If you live overseas, you'll receive your certificate by Royal Mail recorded delivery.

Royal Mail delivery times are:

  • 10 working days for the UK
  • 20 working days for Europe
  • 25 working days worldwide.

Please do not contact us about a missing certificate before Monday 20 September. We won't be able to check where individual certificates are before then.

If you completed your studies between summer 2020 and March 2021

We have posted your certificate to the permanent address you provided for UAL.

Replacement certificates (pre-2020)

We have temporarily suspended this service. For now, we are offering a free, PDF confirmation of your award.

If you studied at UAL after 2004, we can confirm:

  • your name
  • your date of birth
  • your qualification title
  • the date and level of your award.

If you studied at UAL before 2004, we can confirm:

  • your award with the information we have, where possible.

Transcripts

If you completed your studies after 2018:

  • we can email you your transcript.

If you studied with us between 2008 and 2017:

  • we can send you a digital document with your marks and the grading structure
  • we cannot print a hard copy or send it in the post to a third party.

If you studied with us before 2008:

  • we'll tell you what we can issue. (This is because UAL courses became credit-rated at different times.)
  • if we cannot issue a transcript, we will send you a confirmation letter.

Confirmation letters

We can send you a digital letter that will confirm:

  • your name
  • date of birth
  • your qualification title
  • the date and level of award.
