Certificates for coursework and achievements
At the Academic Office in the Department of Economics, you can obtain all of the certificates for coursework and achievements that you need for your studies. These are issued by the responsible course and examination manager.
Transcript of Records (studies)
The Transcript of Records (ToR) documents students’ completed coursework and examinations. It consists of a standardized list of all completed courses and modules together with the credits and grades awarded for these.
You can request your ToR when you need it, for example, for an internship, a scholarship application, or study abroad. Usually, a ToR is issued as an online version, which you can download in your STINE account under "Documents". Please request the issuance of a ToR formless by email to the responsible person in the course and examination management or submit the completed form 'Antrag auf Erstellung von Bescheinigungen' (PDF) by email to the course and examination management.
Graduation documents (bachelor’s and master’s degree programs)
Upon completing your studies, you will receive the following graduation documents on application:
- bachelor’s or master’s diploma (German and English)
- bachelor’s or master’s degree transcripts (German and English)
- Transcript of Records (final) (German and English)
- Diploma Supplement (German and English)
As soon as the academic office receives the grades for your final thesis, a staff member of the course and examination management team will contact you to request that you check to make sure the transcript of records displayed on your STiNE account is complete and accurate. You will also be asked to apply for your final degree documents. Once you have done this, the documents will be prepared. As soon as the documents have been prepared and all signatures obtained, you will be notified that the documents are ready to be dispatched.
You require certified copies of your transcripts and certificates (certificate, final record of grades, transcript of records, or diploma supplement) or other documents you have received in the course of your studies? For this, you need to contact the responsible registration office. Which registration office is responsible in your case depends on your address of residence. In Hamburg, you can obtain certified copies of your documents at the City’s customer service centers (Kundenzentren).
We ask for your understanding that the academic offices in the Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences cannot certify documents.
A Degree Verification is a confirmation from your university that you have graduated with the following information in particular: Course of study, academic degree and graduation date. This kind of confirmation is requested in individual cases by potential, often foreign, employers.
If you need such a confirmation, please contact the CampusCenter of Universität Hamburg and use the contact form for this purpose.
If you need written confirmation documenting your ECTS grades, please contact your degree program coordinator at the academic office and supply the reason for the request and the exact details that should be included in the written confirmation.
