Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement (also known as a transcript) is a UNESCO-CEPES, Council of Europe and European Commission initiative aimed at:

  • transparency in higher education
  • accommodating rapid changes in qualifications
  • aiding mobility, access and lifelong learning
  • promoting fair and informed judgements about qualification

It is issued as a supplement to the Degree Certificate and provides a description of the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies pursued and successfully completed by the individual named on the certificate.

The University of Exeter Diploma Supplement is free from any value-judgements, equivalence statements or suggestions about recognition, and is issued in English free of charge to all students graduating from July 2005 onwards. It is issued as a Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) from 2016 for all taught students. Information about the HEAR.
