Results – what you need to know

Find out how to access your results and academic transcript, and what happens once you finish your course.

How to access your results

You can access your results online by logging into My Results. You can also email yourself an unofficial transcript.

If you can't see your results:

  • the results release date may not have passed
  • results may not have been certified
  • you may have a sanction preventing your results from being released (e.g. outstanding fees or library fines).

Contact studentHQ for assistance. For more information about viewing your results online, see our help guide My Results: How to view your Results online [PDF 350KB].
