Hard Copy Transcript Request

Page Contents >

Hard-copy transcripts are available for most students who graduated after 1993. Hard-copy transcripts can be ordered using the LSE for You Transcript Request Facility. 

In some cases however the hard-copy transcript will not be available or may not be complete;

  • Master’s and diploma transcripts relating to studies before 1997/8 will not show marks obtained in individual modules.
  • LSE transcripts for the LLM programme will not show all marks or modules taken before the 2003/4 academic year. To request a complete transcript, please contact the University of London.
  • MSc in Health Policy, Planning and Financing: Students who graduated after the 2002/3 academic year should email Registry to request a transcript. Students who graduated before the 2002/03 academic year should contact the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to request a transcript.
  • Students who undertook the two year MSc in Economics or the two year MSc in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics  should email Registry to request a transcript.

There is a charge of £5 for each transcript requested (except intermediate transcripts which are free of charge for current students). Transcripts are normally issued within 3-5 working days of Registry receiving your request. 

If you graduated prior to 1993 please see Alumni from before 1993|.

If you graduated after 2010 then an electronic transcript is available for you to share, free of charge, using the Digitary system|.

Hard-copy transcripts do not show any comparative data.
