Transcripts and Certificates

Transcript of Records / Achievement Overview

You can prepare and print out a transcript of records or an overview of your previous achievements in the QIS/LSF portal.

To do so, please proceed as follows:

  1. Register with your University Computing Centre access data on the QIS/LSF portal.
  2. Click in the menu on “Prüfungsverwaltung" (“Exam administration") in the left-hand column.
  3. Click on “Prüfungsbescheinigungen" (“Exam certificates")
  4. Click on “Kontoauszüge" (“Academic records") and select your degree programme.
  5. Via the link “Bericht herunterladen / öffnen" (“Download / open report"), you can now download or open your transcript / overview of achievements as a PDF.
  6. If you need an officially stamped document, please contact the examination office via E-Mail.

Unfortunately, it is not possible at the present time to prepare a transcript of records in English in the QIS/LSF portal. If you need one, please contact the Examination Office during office hours.

It is not possible to prepare a transcript of records in languages other than German and English.

​Final Certificates

Once you have passed your final examination, the Examination Office will issue the following final certificates for you:

  • A final examination certificate with an overview of all examination achievements in the main and minor subject (in German)
  • A degree certificate showing the award of the academic degree of “Bachelor of Arts” or “Master of Arts” (in German)
  • A transcript of records with detailed overview of your coursework and examination achievements (in German and English)
  • A Diploma Supplement with a detailed description of the degree programme, the grading system and information about the Faculty of Social Sciences (in English)

These documents are issued by the Examination Office without you having to apply. It is no longer necessary to submit an “Application for the Issue of Final Certificates”.

As soon as the final certificates have been issued for you, you will receive an email requesting that you collect your documents from the Examination Office.

Please make sure that you save a current email address in the QIS/LSF portal. You can check this – and correct it if necessary – in the menu under “Allgemeine Verwaltung” -> “Kontaktdaten ändern” -> “Postanschrift und E-Mail-Adresse” (“General administration” -> “Change contact details” -> “Postal address and email address”).

Please note:
Unfortunately, there is currently a considerable delay in preparing certificates due to the present situation. We ask for your patience. Insofar as you have completed your studies, we can issue and send you provisional certificates by email.
