Academic transcripts and statements - Section contents

You might want to provide your transcript to an employer, or register with an overseas professional accreditation body, government, DFAT, employers or global verification agencies.

Free transcripts and statements

An academic transcript is an official record of your studies at the University of Melbourne. If an organisation or prospective employer has requested evidence of your enrolment, they’re often requesting official records.

All students will automatically receive four free official records (hosted on My eQuals) upon completing their course and graduation:

  • Academic transcript (one copy once course completion is recorded in my.unimelb and another upon graduating)
  • Testamur (otherwise known as diploma or graduation certificate)
  • Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)

A digital version of your records (unofficial) is available 24/7 at any time during your studies via my.unimelb free of charge.


How to verify a student's qualification

If you are an employer or institution looking to verify a student’s attendance and/or qualification, access the Verification of Qualification service.

Australian education documents sometimes need to be legalised by the Australian Government before they can be used in a foreign country. When the document is legalised it is marked with an 'apostille' stamp that is applied by an Australian Passport Office of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). A student may purchase a certification to be used for an Apostille. Visit the Apostille FAQ for more information.
