How to get transcripts

The London School of Economics and Political Science issues final transcripts online through a secure electronic document system known as Digitary. The transcripts issued through Digitary contain an enhanced amount of information about your academic performance at LSE.

Digitary allows you to quickly and easily share your digitally-signed transcript online with, for example, potential employers or academic institutions. These third parties can then quickly and confidently verify the legally-valid and tamper-proof document. The system is easy to use and comprehensive on-screen instructions are available. An ever-increasing number of employers and educational establishments are happy to accept online transcripts.

However, sometimes an electronic transcript is not accepted so here is a guide to the LSE Transcript.

Transcripts contain the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your date of birth
  • Your student number
  • The title and subject of your programme of study
  • The class of degree or other award obtained (if applicable)
  • The details of the modules studied and the marks awarded (including any fail marks)
  • Start date
  • Completion date (or expected completion date)
  • Graduation date (if applicable)
  • Language of instruction and assessment
  • An explanation of current module grading schemes. For information on previous grading schemes please see Key to transcript grading.

Transcripts DO NOT contain:

  • Classification scheme details
  • Syllabus details
  • Programme transfer details

Please note that, as of January 2012, the School does not issue certified copies of transcripts.
