The Higher Education Achievement Record (transcript) is a comprehensive record of a graduates' achievements. It presents a detailed picture to potential employers and demonstrate interests and skills.
The academic transcript gives details of all the modules students took during the degree, the number of credits associated with each module and the marks achieved, as well as details of professional work placements and information on whether graduates studied abroad.
It also highlights extra-curricular activities such as voluntary work and offices held in student union clubs and societies that have been verified by the University.
The Diploma Supplement issued by Leeds Trniity University follows the model developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and UNESCO/CEPES. The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve international transparency and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates etc).
It is designed to provide a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the individual named on the original qualification to which the supplement is appended.
It is issued as two elements:
- A Higher Education Achievement Record (transcript) - setting out the individual and academic information on an individual holder of one of the University awards as required
- A General Description of the modular programme arrangements and requirements for taught awards at Leeds Trinity University, setting out the information as required
These two elements do not constitute a Diploma Supplement unless they have been issued together in support of an official certificate confirming the award of a degree or other academic qualification.
