HEAR achievements are kept under review by the Student Engagement and Achievement Recognition (SEAR) Group. Please note that the University is under no obligation to publish details of any particular extracurricular/co-curricular achievement/activity in a student's HEAR.

Amendments to your achievement data‌ and excluding activities from your HEAR

For those completing studies you will have the opportunity to view the extracurricular/co-curricular achievements recorded for you and amend or remove any that you do not wish to have published on your HEAR. This usually takes place in May/June. Notification will be sent by email to students who are due to complete studies when this function is available and if you do not make any changes, your HEAR will be published in its entirety.

Further guidance

It is important to remember the following:

  • Your HEAR is not a CV or a job application form, it is simply a record of achievements you have gained whilst studying at Exeter that the University is able to verify. You should not send your HEAR as part of a speculative application to potential employers – only issue it on request.
  • When you complete your course your HEAR is finalised and, with the exception of factual errors, cannot be changed.
  • Graduate employers use a range of recruitment procedures (which may include for example, application forms, CVs and interviews) giving you the opportunity to highlight many areas of your skills and experience, including those that do not appear on your HEAR.
  • The HEAR is likely to be useful during the first few years after you complete your studies, after that its relevance will subside as your employment history becomes far more important.

For these reasons it is important to give some thought to what you wish to include, and in particular what you will be happy for employers to see about your extracurricular activities, now and in the future.
