Withdrawing early from your course

If you decide not to progress to the next or final year of your course and instead want to graduate at the upcoming ceremonies you must tell your department or school as soon as possible. This way they can update their records and you can be put forward for an award. Graduation enrolment is not confirmation that you intend to withdraw early from your course.

Academic transcript

All graduating students will receive an academic transcript free of charge. If you're attending one of the graduation ceremonies you'll be able to collect your academic transcript when you come to collect your guest tickets from Level 2 of the Learning and Teaching Building.

If you're graduating in absentia then your transcript will be sent along with your award parchment after all of the graduation ceremonies have taken place, and this will be sent to the address you provide during the enrolment process.

Please note that as academic transcripts contain personal sensitive data you'll need to present your student card/photo ID for verification purposes before your transcript can be released; it will not be possible for someone else to collect the transcript on your behalf.
