    Hi, I was just wondering if Universities in Ireland and Britain exchange information with each other regarding an applicant. I'm hopefully going back to uni to study as a mature student to study I already have an honours degree but it is totally unrelated to what I want to study now, will I have to provide the original transcripts for my previous degree to my new uni? If not, if i get my transcripts from my previous degree and send them on will the University that I am applying to call my old uni and check them up? Do they also call to check up your Leaving Certificate results even if you send them a copy of it?
    Cheers for your help

    No, they don't talk. You will have to list your previous degree on UCAS, and probably send a transcript of your grades once you have offers, but if its an official transcript theres no reason for your new uni to need to double check it. Same with leaving cert - if you have the original certificate then there's nothing to dispute.
