• Higher Education Achievement Report guide

    A Higher Education Achievement Report or ‘HEAR’ gives you an easy way of providing evidence of the valuable skills and knowledge you have gained while at university. Simply, it’s a comprehensive online report to help you communicate, share and validate your achievements, both academic and extra-curricular, beyond the limitations of your degree classification and certificate.

    Issued by the university, you can access your HEAR electronically throughout your studies (and after you graduate), helping you to monitor your progress and identify any missed opportunities to make more of your university experience. This is a national project, so universities and employers know about it. Want to know more about how the HEAR and how it can help you stand out to employers? Visit ‘The Benefits’ section.

    What you need to know about HEAR

    The HEAR was launched in 2008 (with 18 institutions) following recommendations that universities needed to be able to provide a more comprehensive record of student achievement.

    Currently, 90 universities and colleges are implementing or planning to implement the HEAR.

    This includes 32 institutions who have already issued 427,000 HEARs to students (via Gradintel) – and this number is increasing annually.

    The Higher Education Academy provides the national support for the implementation and maintenance of the HEAR.
