Copies of transcripts and certificates

The University’s Student Registry produces all paper copies of degree transcripts and certificates for full-time Cambridge degrees. You can also order electronic copies that can be shared digitally with anyone of your choice. Please see the Student Registry's degree certificates and transcripts webpage for further information.

If you matriculated in 1980 or later, the Student Registry can issue transcripts online through a secure electronic document system called Digitary CORE. Visit the Student Registry’s transcripts webpage for further information about this service.

Unofficial transcripts (CamSIS Extended Self-Service)

Find out about accessing your unofficial transcript through CamSIS Extended Self-Service on the Student Registry's webpage about transcripts.

Degree verification

All verifications of full time Cambridge degrees are dealt with via Digitary Core, allowing you to decide who you share your personal data with. Please see the degree verification page on the Student Registry’s website for further information.

Graduate Outcomes Survey

You'll be contacted about 15 months after you finish studying about Graduate Outcomes, a national survey about where your degree has taken you. From summer 2017, all graduates who complete a course will be asked to take part in the survey, the results of which can help current and future students consider potential careers after their course.

It is administrated by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), which was responsible for the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey you may have heard about in the past.

To ensure that you're involved, be sure to keep your contact details up-to-date with us.

Find out more on HESA's website.

Cambridge MA

If you studied for a BA here you may proceed to the Cambridge MA, which is not a postgraduate qualification like at other UK universities. Graduations are administrated through your College, so in the first instance you should contact your College's development and alumni relations office to find out about arranging to have your MA Cantab conferred.

Some Colleges let alumni know when their matriculation year group becomes eligible to receive the MA Cantab, so be sure to keep your address updated with your College. This will be not less than six years from the end of your first term of residence, providing that at least two years have passed since you received your BA. If you are unsure, contact your College's development and alumni relations office.

Further information is available on the Cambridge MA page on the Student Registry's website.
