Unfortunately there are a small number of courses which we’re unable to produce transcripts for.
This is a list of those courses. Please click on the one which applies to you for more information:
- Final Year Students
- Bachelor of Music transcripts (BMus) pre-1996
- Bachelor of Law (LLB) & Master of Law (LLM) transcripts
- Postgraduate Masters pre-2000
- Research graduates
- ‘Federal’ or University of London courses
Final Year Students
Final year students are still current students, and so a transcript would be incomplete if ordered during your final year. We advise against ordering your transcript in advance; please wait until you have been awarded to place your order.
Important to know:
- We’re unable to reproduce transcripts for incorrect orders, but we can offer a refund if ordered in error.
- If you’re approaching the end of your studies and need to prove your module results attained during each year of your course, the best document to use is your Record of Agreed Results. For more detail on this please see our article I need to prove my module results so far.
Courses at RADA are accredited by King’s College London. Our role here is to process your award and produce certificates, but all teaching and assessment is done at RADA. This means that if you’re looking for a transcript, this would be issued by RADA rather than KCL, and you’re best to approach support services at RADA to find out how to obtain this.
Bachelor of Music transcripts (BMus) pre-1996
If you studied on the Bachelor of Music Degree (BMus) before 1996 you may not be able to obtain your official academic transcript. Unfortunately, this is because some of the records are incomplete.
In cases where the transcripts are unavailable or indeed you studied this course before 1996, we advise logging a case with us and letting us know what you need and why, and Student Services can look into what we may hold on record for you, and what it might possible to produce for you. For some more information, you may find this article helpful - I’m King’s alumni and I need to prove my degree.
Bachelor of Law (LLB) & Master of Law (LLM) transcripts
Joint LLB transcripts
Transcripts for the LLB taught jointly with another institution will not include a breakdown of the marks obtained at the other university. For details of these results you will need to contact the other university directly.
If you studied on the LLM Programme and graduated before 2000, you are best to contact the University of London since you would have been awarded a University of London degree, and they will hold your information.
All their contact information and details on how to make your request can be found at University of London - Transcripts Office.
Postgraduate Masters pre-2000
Unfortunately, if you completed a taught Masters degree before 1989 you won’t be able to order an academic transcript because before this time, universities were not required to keep detailed records. Depending on the course studied, this can sometimes apply to Masters programmes dating up to 2000.
However, if it is crucial that you obtain a document detailing your course and results, and you studied some time before the year 2000, we can offer 2 options which may be a help:
- If you graduated at this time, you will hold a University of London degree (rather than a King’s College London degree) and so we advise contacting the University of London - Transcripts Office to enquire whether they hold any records for you.
- Student Services can investigate your record and look into what, if any, information may be held about your studies with us. To explore this option, please log a case with us and provide as many details as possible to help us locate your record.
If you studied a research degree, a transcript is not possible because your results are not modular (as they are for taught courses). Examples of these types of degrees are: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Philosophy (MPhil), Doctor of Education (EdD), Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) and Doctor of Medicine (MD).
‘Federal’ or University of London courses
‘Federal’ courses, as they are sometimes known, are historical courses held at King’s but fully administered and awarded by the University of London (UoL). These ran over several years in the past, and covered a wide range of subjects. For this, you would have enrolled at King’s, and had your teaching and marking with us, but all your results would have been ratified by assessment boards at UoL, and UoL would produce all certificates and transcripts.
Important to know: This is not to be confused with courses running before 2008 at King’s, which were fully taught and administered by King’s, but awarded by UoL, because this was at a time before King’s was granted awarding powers. If you are unsure what your course was, please continue reading – hopefully this will clarify things a little more.
If you studied on a University of London (federal) course at King's and wish to order transcript, you need to contact the University of London. All their contact information and details on how to make your request can be found at University of London - Transcripts Office.
The following are the most common University of London (federal) courses:
