The Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) provides a single comprehensive record of your achievement. It is an extended digital transcript you can access which contains detailed information about your learning and achievements.
Along with your degree certificate, it will support applications for employment and further study, as the HEAR is designed to be shared securely with others, including potential employers or other higher education institutions, if you are applying for further study. It will fully capture your academic performance and a range of non-academic achievements, enhancing your employability.
The HEAR provides a free electronic record of your academic transcript, achievements and programme information, but also additional roles within the Students’ Union, ResLife or as an Ambassador. Some Unitemps work experience will also be included.
Students who have completed their studies are eligible to receive a Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) from Staffordshire University and you can build your HEAR over the course of your studies by checking it year on year.
Who is eligible for the HEAR?
All students completing a taught award which is delivered in the UK will be eligible for an electronic HEAR transcript. Students studying overseas will receive a paper transcript.
How can HEAR be accessed?
Staffordshire University is working in partnership with GradIntel to produce the HEAR and eligible students will receive a registration email from email@example.com in their first year of study. You will need to complete the GradIntel registration in order to activate and access your HEAR. As you will be accessing this following your time at the university please remember to change your email once logged in. The HEAR will be published following result publication at the end of each academic year.
If you are struggling to access your account, please follow these steps:
- Go to https://gradintel.com/index.php/account-support/recover/students
- Enter your institution, Student ID and Date of Birth details. (please note, your student id is an 8 digit number with no letters).
- Complete verification via your preferred method; phone, email or security question. If you are activating your account for the first time you will need to verify using your email address (which includes a hint for what email address it is).
- Once your account has been verified, you will be prompted to set up or edit your account details including your account username and password, as well as your security question and answer, to help you login in the future. We recommend you change your email address to your personal account so that you can easily access your HEAR after you have left the University.
