The Academic Registry processes exam results attained by Erasmus and other exchange students, non-EU visiting and EU visiting students once finalised by their department. The transcripts of those results are then sent by post directly to the student's home university, usually during the summer months. These results are not available online, through e-mail or over the phone.

Before the Academic Registry can issue students’ transcripts, all examination and assessment results from the relevant departments and schools must be received. Once assembled, the transcripts are prepared and distributed. This is a prolonged process but every effort is made to ensure that students get their transcripts in the shortest possible time. Academic Registry will be unable to prepare transcripts for a student until all of the relevant departments have returned results.

Every effort is made to assist those students who require their transcript urgently for an exceptional reason such as to meet a deadline for application to a postgraduate course.

Trinity examination results are published towards the end of June each year and should then be available to view through the student portal

Archived Transcripts

Anyone who studied in Trinity as an Erasmus student, exchange student, non-EU visiting student or EU visiting student in previous years can obtain an archived transcript by contacting the Academic Registry.

The Academic Registry prepares academic transcripts for all visiting & Erasmus and EU and Non-EU full degree students on a select number of courses outlined here.
