What is needed when you are asking for the degree transcripts and certificate?


If you have not yet completed your BA degree you should send us a partial transcript of confirmed grades you have achieved so far. If you have completed your first degree you must send a full official transcript of all marks gained and your degree certificate. If you do not have a degree certificate then you must ensure that your transcript states your final overall result. If your transcripts and certificates are not in English, you should send an official translation with your transcript. Please also enclose a copy of any written details about the grading system used  (often printed on the back of the transcript).
