I would like to know what kind of transcripts you normally get from German applicants. Since our educational system here is quite different I can't get the kind of transcripts for each course I have taken (hours, date, content), especially not for course before my the prediploma ("Vordiplom").Is it sufficient to submit certified translated copies of my intermediate diploma ("vordiplom") and diploma ("diplom") stating the general fields and concentrations of my studies and the grades in these areas?Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer from CranfieldTranscripts of your vordiplom and diplom would be acceptable. However, we would need to clarify whether the Diplom-Kaufmann equates to a UK bachelors degree or not. We have checked on our database of equivalent degrees and the Diplom-Kaufmann is not listed.If the diplom is equivalent to a UK degree, we would require at least three years' post qualification work experience. If it is not equivalent then we would ask for more than this.I suggest that when you are ready to apply, you contact us again, and hopefully by that time we shall have more information about the Diplom-Kaufmann.Maureen WilliamsAnswer drom Manchester Business SchoolHiThanks for your e-mail. Normally the transcripts are divided into semesters with the module and grade passed as well as an official stamp.Kind regards
