Transcript and certificate requests
A transcript is a record of your academic history. It lists the titles and marks of the modules you studied in each academic year and gives your period of registration as a student, your degree date and classification.
If you no longer have your transcript, you can request a copy from the Registry Office of the faculty of study relevant to your degree.
All conferment requests from recruiters or alumni should be answered by the relevant Faculty Registry Office or by Ceremonies and Conferments. Please note that Archive Services cannot provide an official response to the enquiry.
NB Due to the UK Data Protection Act 1998 we cannot provide personal data to a third party without a signed consent form from the individual concerned.
These alumni should all have digital records on the Student Records System. There may also be information stored in off-site storage by faculty registries, e.g. in board files. Therefore these enquiries should be directed to the relevant faculty Registry Office in the first instance.
If the student record cannot be found by the registry, they will contact Archive Services who can check the presentation ceremony programmes. Archive Services can also assist if further information is needed about the content of the course, eg syllabus information or exact term dates.
NB Course syllabuses/handbooks have not been kept systematically in the past so we do not have detailed information on every course. However, we can usually provide a scan of the course description in the general prospectus for the year of entry.
These alumni will not be on the Student Records System. Therefore, in the first instance these enquiries should be directed to Ceremonies and Conferments, who have access to older records. In the event that they cannot find the information, they will contact Archive Services.
Archive Services holds paper pass lists for exams pre 1993. From these we can provide the name of the course studied, the level of the award and the date of the exam board. We cannot normally provide individual transcripts or module breakdowns as we do not hold individual student records in the archive.
NB The pass lists we hold are paper copies and have to be searched through manually. Therefore it can take some time. These pass lists are not a definitive set so we cannot guarantee that just because we cannot find an alumnus’ name they didn’t study at Westminster or its predecessor institutions.
Archive Services does not hold any results from Harrow College prior to the merger with PCL in 1990. The only records held are for those students who continued their studies at PCL/UW. We do hold some prospectuses and so we may be able to provide a course description.
Archive Services does not hold any results from Holborn College prior to the merger to form PCL in 1970. The only records held are for those students who continued their studies at PCL. We do hold some prospectuses and so we may be able to provide a course description.
Archive Services holds incomplete records of alumni who studied at Paddington Technical College prior to the amalgamation of the Medical Laboratory Sciences Department with PCL in 1990 so we may be able to provide some award information. Additionally we hold some prospectuses and so we may be able to provide a course description.
