Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) Online Transcript

Graduates awarded a Masters, Undergraduate Degree, Foundation Degree, Advanced Diploma or HND will be issued with an electronic Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR). The document is delivered electronically and the system allows the graduate to grant access to any relevant parties (e.g. potential employers or sponsors) to view this secure, authenticated document and confirm the qualification achieved, etc.  To access your HEAR please watch the online video to help you.

What is the HEAR?

The HEAR replaces the Diploma Supplement which was previously supplied by the University and consisted of a statement of achievement (transcript of grades and classification), placement details, any study abroad, the programme learning outcomes, grading scheme etc. The HEAR includes this information and adds the student's extra-curricular engagements that go beyond the programme and grades detail, to provide an extended picture of the individual, which may aid employability.

The HEAR records their engagement with activities outside the academic curriculum which contribute to the life of the University and the wider community.

Only data verified or monitored by the University or by the Students’ Union is published in the HEAR. Students may also have engaged in other activities outside the University which may have contributed to their personal and professional development but these will be recorded elsewhere, e.g. CV or e-portfolio.

What additional information is provided?
