Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)
Log your activities
Log into your CareerHub account to record all of the activities you’ve been doing recently through the Big Essex Award.
When you study at Essex, you get far more than just a degree. 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.
You can use your HEAR as you go through your degree as a record of all your achievements. You can also use it to apply for
internships and placements, as it’s a fully certified record of your academic results too.
When you graduate, you can share a secure digital version of your HEAR with employers and other universities, providing them with a University-certified record of
Gradintelligence, the University’s partner who providesyour HEAR, has range of tools that you can use to get ready for your next step.
If you’re an undergraduate and started in 2014 or after, you have access to your HEAR now and you just need to activate your account. When you
graduate, your HEAR will be finalised and you’ll have full access to it for life.
If you’re an undergraduate who started before 2014 or a you're a postgraduate, you won’t have access to a HEAR but you’ll receive a printed
transcript of your academic results when you graduate.
How it works
If you want your activities, like being a Course Representative or being on your Sports Exec, to be shown on your HEAR then you’ll need to sign up to the
Big Essex Award. It’s a really simple process and anything you complete through the Award will automatically be shown on your HEAR, along with any awards and prizes you receive.
Activate your account
You'll receive an email from Gradintel with a link to activate your account. It’s important that you activate it now, even if you’re not graduating
this year so that you can get full use from your HEAR.
Your record for life
The HEAR is a secure digital document that you can access and share for life, for free. You’ll still get a degree certificate when you graduate, but if
you need a printed transcript then you’ll need to order one.
If you’ve got any questions about your HEAR, please email us email@example.com.
