    Hi, I would like to apply to study for a Masters degree however an UG degree transcript is required. I contacted my university (graduated in 2001) but they said a transcript is not available. I do remember receiving my results scribbled on a piece of paper! I do of course have my degree certificate. Do you think this would be accepted in place of the transcript? I got a 2:1 in a similar subject to the Masters I'd like to do. Thanks!

    Are you sure you asked the right place in your UG Uni, because it's quite strange for them not to have a transcript for a course done in 2001? I applied for a PG course in 2003 and contacted the uni I graduated from in 1988 and they were able to send a transcript straight away ie transcripts are something a uni should have from way back. A degree certificate almost certainly won't cut it, but you can ask your applying Uni what they would do in the face of no transcript being available.

    Thanks, yes I went to the correct place but there really is no transcript available. It's a really good uni too, so I was surprised. I do have a few feedback sheets with grades from some third year essays, I suppose these might help!

    Hmm, then I'd contact the uni you are applying to and ask what you should do, and if they have any experience of previous applications from this uni not being able to provide a transcript. To be honest, it's a pretty fundamental request - getting a transcript from a uni is the thing that shows you really did get the degree, the degree certificate is not usually accepted as the definitive document.
