City has published updated advice for its students and staff on the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Latest information for students and staff

Last updated: 20 Jul 2021 3:23pm


An official transcript is a statement of your academic performance and progress on your programme of study at City, University of London. It confirms that you are or were a registered student at City and includes the following information:

  • Student details
  • Programme of study
  • Qualification and final result achieved for your programme of study
  • Record of learning and achievement including a list of modules that you have taken, together with the marks and credits achieved
  • Information signifying it is an official transcript, for example the City stamp.

To verify the contents of the transcript, or obtain duplicate copies, contact the issuing school, as signified on the authenticating.

Please note, there may be a charge for each duplicate.

Normally transcripts are prepared within 10 working days from the receipt of the application, but it can be longer during busy periods (especially during exam periods and the start of the autumn term).  For students who graduated prior to 2004 (and especially those pre-1984), it can take much longer as many may only be available as paper records. It is therefore a good idea to order your transcripts as early as possible to ensure they are ready in time for any deadlines.

JACS Codes

JACS (Joint Academic Coding of Subjects) is the system used by UK institutions including the Department for Education and Skills ( DfES ), the Home Office, HEFCE and HESA to identify the subject matter of programmes and modules.

It is also the basis of the UCAS course coding system.

JACS codes do not indicate the level of study: the same codes may be used for undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes, and also Continuing Education modules.

Codes are formed from a letter and three digits. The letter indicates the subject area, and the numbers the topics within the main subject. For example, H represents Engineering, H100 is General Engineering, H200 is Civil Engineering, and so on. The code letter H may be used to cover all engineering topics. Codes consisting of one letter and one number can be used for grouped subjects: H2 covers all Civil Engineering, H3 all Mechanical Engineering etc.

HESA have developed a new subject coding system known as the Higher Education Classification of Subjects (HECoS) and these will replace JACS codes. The migration will take place of the next 2 to 3 academic years after which the JACS codes will be phased out in favour of the new HECoS codes. For more information please visit the HESA website
