The Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) is a way of recording student achievement in higher education and provides more detailed information about students’ learning and achievement than the traditional transcript. It is issued as a free electronic document and will include details of academic achievement, including module grades. However, it will also include information about your programme of study and, if applicable, some additional non-academic achievements. The layout of the HEAR and its format have been prescribed at a national level by the HEAR National Steering Group.
The Higher Education Achievement Record provides students with a comprehensive record of academic and personal achievements, including module grades, in a document verified by the University. Most universities in the UK now provide a HEAR for their students. The HEAR is intended to help potential employers and other universities to gain more detailed information about programmes of study and the achievements of graduates. It is envisaged that the HEAR will enhance employability and education opportunities, as it contains more information about graduates than the traditional transcript.
The HEAR is made up of numerous sections:
Highlighting the skills you have acquired whilst at Staffordshire University can be used to market yourself and boost your graduate prospects. HEAR can aid in this as it provides details of your academic and non-academic achievements.
To improve your HEAR you could:
GradIntel is a service that Staffordshire University is using to publish your HEAR electronically and which allows you to share your HEAR with others such as potential employers or other Universities. A number of Universities are using the GradIntel service to publish HEAR’s for their students.
The HEAR Provides a more detailed description of the student's achievements and their experience whilst studying at University. This then can be used to support an application during the recruitment and selection process.
Your HEAR is an official document which can be electronically shared with any desired third party, including employers and other institutions, through the GradIntel service.
Any documents shared though this service should be recognised as a verified university transcript, but are only considered valid in their digital form.
The procedure for sharing your documents is as follows:
That will then send an e-mail, which includes a document access token, to the recipient’s e-mail address. The recipient will then be able to view your document(s).
The HEAR is a University verified document which is electronically available to all qualifying students. This includes, details of your academic achievements as well as any other additional activities you may have undertaken during your time at Staffordshire University, for example student representation or part-time work.
Your HEAR is a digitally signed document and is designed to be viewed electronically and shared securely with others such as potential employers or other universities.
All students who receive a HEAR will not automatically get a duplicate transcript. This is a significant step in the University drive to become carbon neutral. If you do need a paper transcript, you can request this by visiting our Certificates and Transcripts page for further information.
