Excellence in education

Our rosette icon

Right here, right now

When you study at Essex, you get far more than just a degree, that’s why we’ve launched the Higher Education Achievement Report.

Along with showcasing your academic achievements, the HEAR records any activities you’ve undertaken and logged through the Big Essex Award, and any awards and prizes you receive.

If you’re an undergraduate who started in 2014 or later, you’ll have access to your HEAR. You'll shortly receive an email to activate your account and get started.
