Student Copy of Academic Transcript for Undergraduate Students - Second Phase of Pilot Run.
A pilot run was conducted for undergraduate students in the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Dentistry (i.e. MBBS, BNursing, BPharmacy, BBiomedSc, BChinMed, and BDS students), except exchange/visiting students, to view and download the Student Copy of Academic Transcript ("Student Copy" as referred to below) via the HKU Portal in February this year.
The issue of system loading was assessed after the pilot run and a web version of the Student Copy will be launched under the second phase of the pilot run for current full-time undergraduate students under the 4-year curriculum, except exchange/visiting students, in other Faculties starting from June 26, 2017 (Monday).
The web version of the Student Copy contains key information on academic studies such as a chronological list of courses attended/enrolled, grades and credits for the current degree. Students who have transferred their studies to another degree curriculum may need to apply for an official transcript if a full list of academic record is required. The Student Copy may be helpful to students who need a general academic and enrolment record for job searching and internship application.

Frequently Asked Questions
What document should I apply for if I want to certify the medium of instruction of the University?
Please apply for an official transcript. Information on English as the medium of instruction at the University is pre-printed under section F of "Guide to symbols used in transcripts" at the overleaf of the official transcript.
What kind of document will you certify?
We only certify degree certificates issued by the University. For certificates issued by individual department or HKU SPACE, please contact the relevant office for assistance.
To make a declaration or oath/affirmation of your other documents, you may seek assistance from a Notary Public or any of the Government's Home Affairs Enquiry Centres.
Where can I obtain a document to verify the contact hours of my study?
Please contact your home Faculty for assistance.
What is the difference between a Graduation Certificate and a "Certificate of Graduation (CoG)"?
You do not need to apply for a Graduation Certificate as it is issued to graduates free of charge after the Congregation Ceremony, normally in late November/December.
A "Certificate of Graduation" (CoG) is a document which certifies that a student has successfully completed the requirements for the conferment of a degree and is issued to students before the issuance of graduation certificates. As transcripts and testimonials are suitable for most purpose, you may consider to apply for a CoG only when necessary.
Where can I get more information about the Congregation Ceremony?
Please visit the Congregation website.
