Transcripts and Certificates

When you will receive your transcript and certificates, and how you can request copies.

Primary page content

This page is for graduating students. See information for alumni requesting replacement transcripts and awards.

Transcripts

The HEAR/transcript is a formal document and should be retained as proof of award and breakdown of marks achieved. 

Important note: Students who are in debt to Goldsmiths will not receive their transcript or certificate until after their debt has been cleared. 

18/19 Graduates

If you recently graduated, you can access your results online via My Goldsmiths and download an interim transcript.

If you attended our July ceremonies, you received your official HEAR/transcript at your graduation ceremony. If you attended our December ceremonies or if you did not attend Graduation, your HEAR/transcript was posted to your home address on our records.

Due to Covid-19, Goldsmiths Student Administration staff are now working from home, during this time we are unable to produce transcripts. If you are a recent graduate and did not receive your transcript, please contact assessments (@gold.ac.uk).

If you have lost or damaged your HEAR/transcript you should visit this page and follow the instructions on how to request a replacement. Please note there will be a charge for this service.

19/20 Finalists 

If you are graduating soon visit this page before the end of term to check and update your name (including spelling) and home address on our records. It is vital that our records are correct by the end of the academic year to ensure your transcript and certificate are printed correctly and so your documents will reach you in the post. 

If your home address is in a non-Latin alphabet (e.g. Mandarin or Arabic), you must email this to assessments (@gold.ac.uk), including your student ID, mobile number and name of your programme. We will then use both the Latin and non-Latin versions for posting. This will need to be provided before the end of term.  

If your details (name and home address) are incorrect on our records and you have not updated them by the end of term you must email assessments (@gold.ac.uk), including your student ID, mobile number and name of your programme, to see what the next steps are. Please note that if your transcript has already been produced and posted there may be a fee to produce new documents.

Certificate

Degree certificates are issued by the University of London and will be sent to you approximately three to four months after your results have been published.

Certificates for interim awards (e.g. Certificate/Diploma in Higher Education or Postgraduate Certificate/Diploma), Foundation and Nordoff Robbins certificates are produced by Goldsmiths and will be sent to you approximately two months after your results have been published.

Due to Covid-19, Goldsmiths Student Administration staff are now working from home, during this time we are unable to produce certificates. For any queries, please contact assessments (@gold.ac.uk).

The University of London (UoL) has closed all administration buildings in central London from 4pm on Friday 20 March until further notice.

During this time the Diploma Production Office are unable to respond to email queries and will not be producing replacement certificates during this time. The UoL apologise for any inconvenience caused but have made the decision to close for the safety of the staff of the University.   

See the University of London website for updates on confirmed dates for when the buildings will re-open. 

Withdrawn Students

Students who withdraw before completing their programme and do not achieve an award will not receive a transcript unless this is requested.

To request a transcript, you should email assessments (@gold.ac.uk) with your student ID and programme details.
