Module is not bookable on the web

Question: Why can the student not book a module that has a "b" as the last character in the abbreviation?

Answer: As soon as there are several modules in the same semester where the abbreviations start with "06" and are identical except for the last character and the last character consists of small letters, the student can only book one of these two modules. This is a special regulation of the PhF.

If both modules are to be booked, change the abbreviation, for example by capitalizing the last letter.

Questions and answers on the sending of transcripts of records (electronic)

Question: What is the last transcript of records sent by mail?
Answer: The one for the spring semester 2017, sent on 20.9.2017 and 16.10.2017.

Question: What is the first transcript of records available electronically as a PDF file?
Answer: The one for the fall semester 2017, available since the end of February 2018.

Question: Why is paper output subject to a fee?
Answer: This is a new manual process that requires resources of the Student Services. Depending on the circumstances, this may also involve additional services such as delivery to a different delivery address or certification.

Question: Do I also receive a transcript of records when I am on leave?
Answer: Yes, students on leave of absence also receive a transcript of records.

Question: How long can I download a semester's transcript of records?
Answer 1: For about half a year, until the next mailing date. After that it will be replaced by the new transcript of records from the last completed semester.

Answer 2: This also applies in the case of a correction: always the last generated transcript of records is available in the download area. Older transcripts of records are no longer visible.

Answer 3: In case of de-registration (e.g. in case of graduation/abandonment or minor subject mobility) you have access as long as the AAI | edu-ID login works (4 months after de-registration date). The validity of the UZH account can be extended to a maximum of 12 months. After this period, you must contact the Dean's Office or the Student Services.

Question: How is the acceptance of the transcript of records as PDF at other universities?
Answer: Where previously a scan could or had to be submitted, there is now a simplification. The same applies if you belong to a faculty that already offers transcripts of records translated into English. All other faculties might have required a certification anyway or you might even need several copies. This process is now simplified with the electronic ordering option.

Question: Why does the UZH not generate PDF/A or provide the PDFs with a digital signature?
Answer: The UZH is not yet technically ready. However, projects are planned in the near future to address the topic throughout the UZH. Then the processes around the transcripts of records can also be converted.

Question: Why is the PDF of the transcripts of records not fully tagged (would improve readability in a screen reader for the visually impaired)?
Answer: Due to the document layout used in the header and footer areas, UZH is technically unable to offer the entire document as a tagged PDF.

Question: My faculty does not yet generate English transcripts or I have not yet received one. Therefore I do not see any for download or cannot order one. How do I proceed?
Answer: Please contact the dean's office of your faculty by e-mail.

Question: How do I get to the download area for transcripts of records? I cannot find it when booking modules, in OLAT, or in other web services.
Answer: Please go to and log in. Then click on the title "My transcript of records":
