The HEAR is designed to:

  • be shared securely with others, for example with a potential employer or other higher education institution
  • fully capture your academic performance
  • act as an aide memoire when making applications for jobs and further study

  • Graduated from an undergraduate campus-based course from 2012 onwards

Graduates of the following programmes are not eligible to receive a HEAR:

  • School of Medicine
  • BA Humanities
  • Lifelong learning courses
  • Incoming Erasmus and Joint Year Abroad (JYA) students

Graduates who have been awarded one of the following degrees are not eligible to receive a HEAR:

  • Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE)
  • Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE)
  • Any Postgraduate award including Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE), Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate.
