Whilst you are studying at the University of Leeds you will need to follow the exam policies and procedures as set out by the Exams Office and your teaching school/s. This includes what to do if something has affected your studies or you need to take a resit.
If you are a Semester 1 only student and the examinations in January will clash with teaching at your home institution, you can apply to take your University of Leeds exams at your home institution.
Receiving your transcript
Due to the impact of Coronavirus (covid-19), the Study Abroad Team are working remotely and therefore there may be delays sending your official transcript. We aim to send transcripts to all exchange and Study Abroad students during July 2020.
Your official University of Leeds transcript will be mailed to your permanent home address; rather than directly to your home University.
If you studied in Leeds as an exchange student during the 2019-20 academic year your transcript will be posted to your permanent home address as it is listed in the Universitys computer system, rather than to your home university, as we are aware that many University campuses across the world continue to remain partially or fully closed. Your home university will be informed of this decision.
Please update your permanent home address on Minerva before the end of June 2020. If you no longer have access to Minerva you are able to send updated address details to the Study Abroad Team. It is your responsibility to pass on your transcript to your home university so that they can assess your study abroad period and transfer credit if necessary. If you an EPMA student or have applied through API or IFSA-Butler your transcript will be posted to your agent, who will arrange for your academic record to be sent on to your home institution.
Full-year students: you will be able to view your January exam results on Minerva. Provisional semester 1 marks should be available by the end of week 4 of teaching in semester 2. If your home institution wishes to see your exam results at the end of semester 1, you should send them a print-out of the information on Minerva.
Semester 1 students: even if you leave Leeds in January, we cannot produce your official transcript until July. This is because the January exam results remain provisional until external exam board meetings in late June.
The study abroad office will produce a provisional transcript for all students who are studying at Leeds for semester 1 only. This will be emailed in late February to your personal email address as it is listed in the Universitys computer system. It is your responsibility to pass on your provisional transcript to your home university.
Students taking postgraduate modules: results for postgraduate modules (coded 5xxxM) are not usually made official until the November following the end of your stay in Leeds. This is because our taught postgraduate degrees end in October, and external exam boards usually only meet later in the year.
If you have taken a mixture of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, you will receive a transcript in July, but the postgraduate results will still be provisional. If your grades change, you will then automatically receive another transcript in November, which will show all your official results.
