Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR)

  • The Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) will record your experience and skills gained at UWS and is designed to allow students to better connect their University experience with their employability.

    If you started undergraduate study at UWS in/after September 2015, the University is giving you a Higher Education Achievement Report or ‘HEAR’, to provide you with a comprehensive report of your university achievements.

    The HEAR includes academic information about your course, modules and grades, with extra-curricular activities and awards, such as the Court Medal, University prizes, Volunteering awards and many other additional achievements also included.

    You can use your HEAR as evidence of the knowledge and experience you gain at UWS, e.g. to help you demonstrate your skills when applying for jobs/further study. The HEAR has been developed through a national project, so employers and other universities know about it too.

    Your HEAR will provide you with a comprehensive record of your university achievements, including both academic and extra-curricular learning and experience and will be issued to all undergraduate students who graduate from July 2016 onwards.
    Activities that are currently recognised on your HEAR are listed on the HEAR Activities webpage.
