Transcripts / Diploma Supplement

If eligible, your HEAR (digital transcript) will be updated shortly after your official results publication date and be available on Gradintelligence once you have activated your account, which you can view and share with other institutions and employers. This is a free service and is accessible indefinitely.

The HEAR is a Diploma Supplement and is an explanatory document attached to any higher education qualification, acting as a supplementary explanation of the qualification. The name ‘Diploma Supplement’ derives from the common European practice to refer to any qualification generally as a ‘diploma’ and therefore it is important not to confuse the Diploma Supplement with any one particular qualification. Students awarded at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels (e.g. Bachelor's and Master's degrees) can receive a HEAR (Diploma Supplement) and the document itself describes details such as the name, level and classification of the award.

The HEAR provides a standardised description of the nature, level, content and status of the studies completed by its holder according to standards agreed by the Commission, the Council of Europe and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

If you are unable to use a HEAR and require a transcript or award letter on Queen Mary University letterhead please see our webpage on graduate documents.

Award Letter

Once you have received your official confirmed results, you can obtain a digital or physical award letter that confirms your dates of study and your award details, or a hard copy of your transcript. Please note there is a charge of £10 for each document. For more information on this, please visit our webpage on graduate documents.
