What is HEAR?

The HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report) is an enhanced transcript that provides information on students’ achievements and activities in addition to details of their academic achievement. HEARs may be used by employers or educational institutions to verify the results and achievements of applicants.

HEARs are issued to undergraduate and postgraduate taught students at Exeter.

The HEAR will contain activities that have been approved for inclusion by the University and the achievement is verified by the University.  You can see what has been approved on this web page.

All students who are eligible to receive a HEAR are invited, by email, to check their additional achievements and activities prior to graduation. Any omissions, corrections or exclusions can be reported at this time. This is a direct link to information for students about reviewing your HEAR.

The final HEAR is usually issued during the week before a graduation ceremony.

HEARs are stored on the GradIntel platform and graduates can issue tokens to allow others such as employers to view their HEAR. We set up GradIntel accounts for all who will be getting a HEAR.

Providing the HEAR is not a statutory requirement, but it is a nationally recognised document and many higher education institutions issue HEARs.
