What is an Enhanced Transcript?

An Enhanced Transcript is a formal University document which will include not only details of your award and grades, but also a range of academic and extra-curricular activities undertaken whilst at University. 

What are the benefits of an Enhanced Transcript?

The Enhanced Transcript is designed to help you to maximise your employability as it records your University achievements in one document which you can share with prospective employers and postgraduate recruiters.

The Enhanced Transcript does not replace your degree certificate or CV; it is a supplementary document.

What will appear on an Enhanced Transcript?

The Enhanced Transcript was launched by Heriot Watt University in July 2019.  Where available, awards and accolades from earlier academic years have been added to the enhanced transcript, but there are several categories where records only apply from academic year 2018/2019.  The undernoted table sets out the periods covered under each Enhanced Transcript heading.

What does an Enhanced Transcript look like?

The Enhanced Transcript will list your achievements and provide a brief description of each activity.  It will be accompanied by your Academic Transcript and you will be able to use them separately or as a complete record of your academic and extra-curricular achievements.
