How do I submit a transcript?

Transcripts can be submitted 

  • by fax to +44 (0) 20 7955 6137
  • by post to Graduate Admissions, The London School of Economics, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE
  • online via the new information form .

If you apply online: You may submit scanned versions of your transcripts with your online application, in English or officially translated as described below. If your application is successful, we must receive original or certified signed documents prior to registration. From the outset you may also choose to supply these documents by post.

If you apply with a paper application: We require original or certified copies of all documents in English. We will accept a translation, but only if it has an official stamp from your university or a translation service and if the original document is also supplied. We will not accept an unofficial translation. If you cannot supply original documents at the time you submit your application, we will accept photocopies at that stage, but original documents are preferred. If your application is successful, we must receive original or certified signed documents prior to registration in October.

What are transcripts?

Qualifications pending: The transcript or mark sheet is a list of subjects studied and the grades obtained to date. If you are at a university that does not supply transcripts or mark sheets, please ask your academic referees to comment in detail on your progress, including your marks obtained in all years of study. You may apply if you are awaiting any examination results. You must have fully graduated by the end of October in the year you are expected to register.

Qualifications held: The transcript should include the information above, plus your final overall grade and the date on which your qualification was awarded. You should supply this information for all university level study. If your transcript does not include your final mark and date of award, you should send a certified copy of your degree certificate as well. Do not send your original degree certificate, as documents cannot be returned.

Applicants currently or formerly registered at LSE do not need to supply transcripts of their LSE qualifications as these are generated internally.
