TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS
We will be issuing the student’s Transcripts of
Records as soon as their UC local grades have been uploaded by the
lecturers and validated by the services. This also includes the full year
However, it is important to bear in mind that our IT system only allows the Transcript of Records to be printed after the re-sit examination period finishes.
For more information about the UC grading scale please check the link http://www.uc.pt/en/ects/info_inst/ma
UC TR’s include, not only, the local grade, but also the (corresponding) ECTS grade. This information is automatically generated by our IT system (platform) and cannot be changed, since;
the classification obtained in the ECTS grading scale at the University of Coimbra is based on the distribution of the grades in the range of 10 to 20 obtained by all students in a course unit or in a degree’s final classification corresponding to the three academic years prior to those grades taking into account a minimum cohort of 30 approved or graduated students.
In general, we try to accomplish the ERASMUS+ rule that the Transcript needs to be delivered to the home university no later than 5 weeks after the assessment period has finished at the receiving HEI.
Based on our previous experience and according to our academic calendar, TRs will be send, until March (1st semester students) and until September (2nd semester/annual students) at the latest.
Usually, a scanned (signed/stamped) version of the TR is sent, both to the student him/herself, as well as, to the partner institution.
Currently, TR’s are only provided in an electronic version (UC provides, no longer, the paper version).
For any further information about this issue, please contact directly the Head of the International Relations Unit (further contacts at https://www.uc.pt/en/driic/contatos).
