Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)

Graduating in 2024?

You'll get an opportunity to review the extra-curricular achievements in your HEAR in late May. We'll email you when it's available.  

HEARs are usually issued in July and December, during the week before graduation. HEARs are issued after Awards are made and may be issued at other times of the year depending on when your Award is made.     

The HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report) is an enhanced electronic transcript which provides information on academic achievements, prizes and awards as well as selected extra curricular achievements such as elected positions on societies. 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 after a degree has been conferred. 

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 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. There is information for students about reviewing your HEAR.

The final HEAR is usually issued during the week before a graduation ceremony. HEARs are issued after a degree has been conferred and may be issued at other times of year, for example where there is a referred/deferred assessment. HEARs are not available instantly once an Award is made, they are issued in batches and when your HEAR is issued you'll get an email from GradIntelligence with details of how to access it. 

HEARs are stored on the GradIntelligence platform and graduates can issue tokens to allow others such as employers to view their HEAR. We set up GradIntelligence 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.
