University College Birmingham Degree Certificate
Marks and Certificates
Whether you’re a former student who needs to replace vital documents, or a current student who wants to know what you will receive when you complete your studies, you will find all the relevant information here.
What will you receive
On successful completion of their course, all students are awarded a certificate. If you are an HE student (depending on the award you studied) you will also be given a record of your marks in the form of a Transcript or Notification of Performance.
If you studied an Honours degree this will also show your final classification (First, 2:1, 2:2, or Third). FdA, FdSc, DipHE and HND programmes have no overall classification, but a detailed Notification of Performance is provided by Edexcel showing a grade for each unit (such as Pass, Merit or Distinction). Your year manager will also provide, on request, a reference which includes information about placements, prizes or other achievements.
All degree students receive one free certificate and transcript/results letter showing they have passed the year/course. For those completing in January, all students will be expected to have received a transcript by April 1.
Students finishing in June/July can expect to receive a transcript by the following September. If you do not receive this, the Examinations Unit will send another free of charge, although this will be marked as a copy. After this period, if you want a replacement for a lost transcript, then the charges listed below will apply.
Replacement transcripts cost £25 per copy to produce. Transcripts typically take between two to four weeks to process, so please allow as much time as possible before you need the certificate.
Some students require several copies of their Certificate or Transcript and these copies need to be certified by the University as genuine. The University provides a service for this, which carries the following charges:
- Certified Copy of Certificate – £2 per copy
- Certified Copy of Transcript – £2 per copy
