How do I get it?

If you are an undergraduate or a taught postgraduate student, you will receive the Enhanced Transcript automatically when you graduate or leave the University.

If you have completed an Enhanced Transcript-recordable activity, once this has been verified by the University, it will be recorded in the co-curriculum section of your Transcript. You do not need to do anything to include approved co-curricular activities in your Enhanced Transcript.

Note that the academic section records all awarded marks, including fails and resits for any reason other than medical circumstances or other good cause (MC/GC).
